Island Okras

Recipe by  

"In Barbados okras are plentiful! My family eats them almost weekly and this is our favorite way of cooking them! One of the greatest things about this dish is that the okras are not slimy or mushy, and the lime gives it a great kick! I often serve this dish with a curry... but it is a great side dish for most meals!!!"

Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the okra, salt, and pepper. Increase the heat to high; cook and stir until the okra begins to brown, about 10 minutes. Pour the lime juice over the okra and continue cooking for 2 minutes.

Very very good and incredibly easy. It's true okra sliced this way is not gooey. I decreased the amount made and the onions and garlic were near carmelized but it only added to the delicious taste of the dish. I did add more garlic than called for but that was really the only change I made. I will definitely make again!

Great tasting! I did not have that okra mucous nearly as bad by slicing lengthwise as I do when slicing in coin shapes! I did not use the oil, instead, I just sprayed the pan. I loved the taste of the lime in this! I will be making this again!
