Stewed down salt fish can also be served with rice, breadfruit, or yam. This cou cou recipe is different in that the cornmeal is blended with cold water ahead of cooking it with the okras. This makes it smooth and much quicker to prepare.
You will need the following ingredients:
2 1/2 cups 12oz cornmeal
1-2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons chopped onion
Process the cornmeal and 1 teaspoon salt with 3 cups of water in a blender.
Cut the tops off the okras, wash and slice thinly into circles; place okras in a medium saucepan with 3 cups of water and chopped onion. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain into a heatproof jug and place the okras back into the saucepan along with the butter and blended cornmeal.
Place the saucepan with the cornmeal over medium heat and gradually add the okra water, stirring to blend.
Once all okra water is added, lower the heat, cover, and steam.
