Cook 5 min. more. Add the okra and the fish stock bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer.
Cook till soup starts to thicken(tomato paste can be added at this point if desired).
Add the cubed catfish and simmer till fish is done. Season w/salt & pepper.
Pass the crushed red pepper flakes.
NOTE: to spice up the soup add tabasco,grn.red pepper. Can also add crab, shrimp, oysters, chicken. Went out fishing the other day and caught a few catfish too small to keep but this recipe came to mind. Its real good when made spicy and served with COLD beer. 04/29 11:17 Weird AL A.Green14 on Genie
