From the Deep South of the USA comes this piquant gumbo with rice, chicken, prawns and vegetables, a cross between a soup and a stew – a filling feast in a bowl. The sliced okra not only contributes towards your five-a-day, but gives the gumbo its traditional thickened texture.

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!
