Wash your seafood properly,
Season the seafood with seasoning cubes and salt in a stock pot.
Allow to steam for 7 minutes. Put down.
In another pot, put your palm oil and fry your chopped onions for a minute.
Add your blended tomatoes, pepper and crayfish. For a more authentic taste, add traditional okpei, otherwise known as locust beans. You can choose to blend in a blender or do it with a mortar and pestle – whichever you prefer.
It should look like this when you add the blend into the palm oil.
Allow to boil for 5 to 10 minutes or allow the water content to be reduced.
Add your seafood stock and your finely diced okra and boil for 5 minutes.
