Tilapia and okra

This is eye-candy indeed. And so tasty, too. (N.B. Yusuke is responsible for the excellent photography.)


  • fillet of tilapia
  • white mushrooms
  • okra
  • tomato


Boil everything, Except the tomato, each separately. Chop it all up and combine.

Serve with a sauce made of the following:

  • 1 1/2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • splash of lime juice
  • tiny bit of sugar

Last, sprinkle with shichimi togarashi (seven spices seasoning).

The original recipe that inspired this dish used shimeji mushrooms (we only had boring white ones) and daikon instead of the fish. But I think the substitution was extremely effective. I’m glad that Yusuke has found uses for tilapia: it’s super-duper cheap. On the other hand, this article says that it has a dangerous ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 fats. Ruh roh. But I think I’ll take my chances for the time being.
