Caramelized okra brings out the veggie’s natural sweetness while searing away its sliminess. Okra’s flavor is enhanced with summer corn and coconut in this side dish. To give the combination more of a spicy kick, toss the vegetables with a squeeze or two of sriracha hot sauce when adding the lime juice.
