Seafood Okro Soup

Hello all,

First of all apologies for late response to comments. I have been so very busy reason why i haven’t posted in a while. I have now responded to all comments just before embarking on this post.

Today’s recipe is Seafood okro soup. I have been down with flu for some days now and been on liquid food. Yesterday my fever broke and I craved all sort of food. I decided to make Seafood Okro soup. I had it with Amala and my stomach was truly happy 🙂

Here is my recipe for Seafood Okro peppersoup. Let’s cook:

Okro soup

INGREDIENTS

25 pieces medium sized Fresh Okro (lady fingers)

3 stock cubes (maggi)

1-2 cooking spoons Palmoil

1 tablespoon ground pepper

3-4 red or yellow Scotch bonnet (chopped or blended)

1/4 cup grounded Crayfish

Prawns (deveined)_

Few pieces Stock fish (Panla)

Hake Fish/ Mackerel fish

Crab, squids, Shrimps, mussels (cleaned)

Vegetable (Ugu, kale, spinach or any vegetable of choice)

DIRECTIONS

1)Wash the Okro and grate or blend into small cubes. If blending, be careful not to use too much water

2) In a pot, add about 2 cups of water, add in the fish, stock cubes, pepper, palmoil, iru and salt.

I used Hake and mackerel fish

3) Leave to cook for 5-10 minutes then add crayfish, Crab, squids,shrimps and leave to cook for another 5 minutes.

4) Take out the fish from the sauce.

Don’t worry this will be introduced back into the pot. Reason is not to scatter the tender fish.
5) Now add the grated or blended okro and Ugu leaves

IMG_3925Do not cover pot after okro has been introduced into the pot. If you do then okro won’t keep it’s resilience.

10) Taste for salt and seasoning, adjust accordingly, reduce the heat and let simmer for 3 minutes.

The retained heat keeps cooking the Okro for about another 2 minutes after you take off heat so be careful not to overcook.

I added some more chopped scotch bonnet as i wanted it peppery.
