Step 1

Heat 1/4 cup oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook 1 shallot, 2 garlic cloves, 1/2 chile, and 1 Tbsp. ginger, stirring, 30 seconds. Add half of okra and cook, tossing occasionally, until tender and golden brown, about 4 minutes; season with salt and pepper and transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining oil, shallot, garlic, chile, ginger, and okra, returning first batch to skillet when second batch has finished cooking.
Add lime juice and toss to combine.
Serve with lime wedges for squeezing over.
