  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the onions, and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, or until they start to soften. Add the okra and cook for 2 minutes, then add the garlic and shrimp and continue to cook, stirring frequently, for 2–3 minutes or until the shrimp have just started to turn pink.
  3. Stir in the wine and dill, and cook for 2 minutes, then stir in the bulgur. Transfer to an ovenproof serving dish, season with salt and pepper, and cover with foil. Bake, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes, or until heated through. Serve hot or cold.
