  • Okra
  • Red palm oil
  • Beef
  • Shaki (this is optional)
  • Iced Fish (Mackerel/Titus)
  • Dry Fish
  • Stock Fish
  • Crayfish
  • Ground Pepper
  • Salt
  • Onions
  • Nigerian pumpkin leaves (vegetable)
  • Stock cubes


There are basic preparations that need to be made before getting to cook up your ingredients in the pot, so you need to boil your stock-fish and leave to soak for about 25 minutes.

Well, this depends on the type of stock fish that you have because you may not need to soak or boil for that long. Chop your okra into tiny pieces so that it will draw. Grind your crayfish and well, if your pepper is not ground, go ahead and grind it too.

Wash your vegetable leaves and cut into pieces.

  1. If you will be using shaki (cow tripe) for the soup, you need to wash and boil till it is done. Afterwards, add water sparingly because of the thickness of okra soup. You can go ahead and add the stock-fish and dry fish to the cooked cow tripe. You can take a bite to confirm that your shaki is tender and good to go.
  2. When you are comfortable with the tenderness of the shaki, and the stock fish is well-done, add the beef, onions and stock cubes and cook till properly done. Your iced fish can be added there after and cooked till done.
  3. Pour red palm oil into another pot and be sure to heat the pot to dissolve the oil if it is congealed. Add the chopped okra and start frying to kick-start the drawing process, add some meat stock from time to time till you notice the okra has begun to draw. This process should take a maximum of 3-5 mins to avoid over-cooking the okra.
  4. Add the vegetable leaves to it and stir properly. Add all the meat and fish, crayfish, pepper and salt to taste. Then stir well.
  5. Cover the cooking pot and leave to simmer and it is ready to be served with your favourite swallow. I love to take my okra soup with pounded yam. So what do you love?
