Remove the fish from water and allow to cool.
Remove all of bones and skin then flake the flesh of the fish.
Serve with yam, green banana, fried dumplings and Irish potato.
Melt the butter in a frying pan and add the onion, black pepper, sweet pepper, chilli, okra, thyme and half a cup of water. Cover and steam for about 20 minutes
Add the tomatoes and flaked fish and steam for another 10 minutes.
