Terrific flavors from the garden and grill come together in this summery twist on a New Orleans favorite. Served in smaller portions, it also makes a great first course.

How to Make It

Step 1

Soak wooden skewers in water 30 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Peel shrimp; devein, if desired. Drizzle shrimp with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. Cajun seasoning. Thread shrimp onto skewers.

Step 3

Drizzle okra, onion, and bell pepper with remaining 1 Tbsp. olive oil; sprinkle with remaining 2 tsp. Cajun seasoning.

Step 4

Grill okra, covered with grill lid, 4 minutes on each side or until tender. Grill onion slices and bell pepper, covered with grill lid, 6 minutes on each side or until tender. Grill shrimp, covered with grill lid, 2 minutes on each side or just until shrimp turn pink.

Step 5

Cut okra in half lengthwise. Coarsely chop bell pepper. Toss together okra, bell pepper, and onion in a large bowl.

Step 6

Remove shrimp from skewers, and toss with okra mixture, tomatoes, and Fresh Corn Vinaigrette.

Amazing and flavorful! I roasted the veggies in the oven, and sautéed the shrimp in a pan...but otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing! Great summer meal.

Outstanding and so simple! We used homemade cajun seasoning from a previous recipe and fresh okra and a green bell pepper from the garden. Also grilled a red bell pepper and served the salad over grilled Romaine. The corn vinaigrette makes a lot - definitely enough for two meals, so we're making the salad again tonight.

The flavors worked so well together using fresh vegatables from our garden and the farmers market.
