Yummy! I am not a huge fan of okra, but when it is fresh, and prepared in such a simple but tasty way, I wonder why I don't eat it more often.The heat of the oil baste was a good complement to the mild flavor of the okra, along with the tang of the tomatoes and onions. I served it as a side with grilled tri-tip. Pretty and delicious.

Delicious! and easy too. Made these two days in a row. Second time we didn't skewer them because I was lazy. Worked out fine. Even got some friends that never tried okra to eat them and I think I have a few converts!

We had so much fresh okra from the garden that I doubled the basting sauce. Sweet onions, fresh grape tomatoes and crisp okra - the essence of summer on the grill!

I was out of ground red pepper so I substituted red pepper flakes. It was great. We also added shrimp to the skewers and served it with red beans and rice. Great South Louisiana tastes. My husband said it's a keeper.

Delish! I love okra and I'm always looking for ways to cook it where it stays a little firm. This was great! Nice display on the platter too. Served with flank steak and grilled corn on the cob. Cook it last. Much better warm than cold.
