This wasn't a real recipe I found from Benin, but rather a combination of a few different recipes. I liked the flavors of sauce gumbo (slow-stewed okra and tomatoes) and ago glain (crab seasoned with pili-pili). So I combined them and came up with this.
crab meat, cooked and cleaned
smoked sea salt
In a large flat-bottomed pan, soften the garlic and chile in a pat of butter with a splash of olive oil. Add the tomatoes, okra, and chicken boullion. Cook until the okra is cooked through. There's a reason Peace Corp volunteers call this "snot sauce." Add the crab meat and season to taste. Serve with mashed cassava and mashed plantains.
