Smoked Fish Okra Stew

30-Minute Smoked Fish and Okra Stew Recipe

Smoked Fish Okra Stew

Okra is an ingredient in many soup and stew recipes throughout Africa. The young leaves and flowers of the okra plant are edible; also, okra leaves are frequently boiled or used dried ground into a powder to thicken soups and stews.



Okra tastes like okra having a unique flavor and texture. Okra naturally releases a gooey material called mucilage when cut, mucilage makes okra a natural thickener to soups and stews. Any type of acids such as tomatoes, vinegar or lemon juice will counteract the mucilage of okra.
