Serves: 4
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 40 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    1 large onion, diced
    1 green bell pepper, diced
    1 habanero or Scotch bonnet pepper (or substitute other fresh hot peppers), minced
    1 rib celery, diced
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (or ½ teaspoon dried thyme)
    1¼ teaspoon salt, plus additional to taste
    2 tablespoons white vinegar
    1 cup canned crushed or puréed tomatoes
    1 tablespoon tomato paste
    1 cup cornmeal
    1 tablespoon butter
    3/4 cup thickly sliced okra (fresh or frozen), cooked
    2 limes, juiced
    2 pounds boneless red snapper fillets


  • Heat oil in large sauté pan over medium heat. Add onion, peppers, celery, garlic, thyme and ¼ teaspoon salt. Cook until tender and starting to brown, about 10 minutes. Add vinegar, tomatoes, tomato paste and ¼ cup water. Reduce heat to low, and cook 10 minutes. Add salt to taste. Reserve sauce.

    To make fungi, bring 2 cups water and 1 teaspoon salt to boil. Whisking constantly, gradually add cornmeal in thin stream. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring frequently, until it holds its shape on a spoon but the cornmeal is tender, at least 15 minutes. Add more water if it becomes thick but the cornmeal is still tough. Add butter and okra. Add salt to taste.

    In a wide saucepan, bring 8 cups water to boil. Add lime juice, and reduce heat to low. Add fish. Simmer 10 minutes, or until it flakes easily with fork. Drain well.

    To serve, put 2 scoops fungi and a fish fillet on each plate. Spoon sauce over and around fish.
