"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!!!"

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 tas...

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 tas...

Simple and delish. Instead of black pepper I added red crushed pepper and gave it a little heat.
