About this recipe: A delicious Cajun gumbo made with tilapia that will have your mouth watering for more. Catfish or cod can be used instead of tilapia. Okra - also known as ladies' fingers - is a staple in the American South, as well as in Indian, Caribbean and Middle Eastern cooking. Enjoy this easy but exotic fish stew!
Everything looked and smelled soooo good until I put the catfish in. I just wasn't sure about "boiled" fish. I served it up and my kids wouldn't touch it even after convincing them that this is the same fish I fry w/ french fries. My husband and I tried it, and both agreed that shrimp would've been far better. We picked around the catfish. - 02 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I held back on the tabasco sauce while cooking this one for the kids' sake and put it out on the table instead for the adults. I was still skeptical about my kids eating this one but they all liked it and the 2-year-old LOVED it. This is a great recipe. We will definitely have it again. - 07 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
We were looking for a recipe to get rid of some of the okra my wife bought at a farmer's market. This turned out better than expected. Now we have a reason to buy more okra! - 15 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
