Yields4 ServingsPrep Time5 minsCook Time6 minsTotal Time11 mins

If you’re not keen on firing up the BBQ, you can char them over a gas flame.


 300 g okra
 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
 40 ml lemon juice (juice and zest of a big fat juicey lemon)
 ¼ medium red onion (super-finely chopped)
 1 clove garlic (minced)
 ½ whole red chilli (finely chopped)
 ½ handful coriander (roughly chopped)

Get your BBQ up to a medium heat then make the dressing.


Whisk the olive oil, lemon juice and zest, onion, garlic, chilli and coriander together in a large mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper.


Place the okra on the grill or flame for 3 minutes on each side until evenly charred.


While they’re still hot, add the okra to the dressing and toss them to suck up the dressing.


Tip them onto a platter and serve hot or cold.
