This wasn't as good as I hoped. I'd cut the okra into slices, instead of leaving the whole pods. The black pepper was too strong, but other seasoning felt lacking. I would stir in black-eyed peas next time to make this a hearty main dish.
I added one half pound cooked and pealed
25 count shrimp and two diced jalapinos
to heat it up a bit. Also have substituted
Rotel spiced tomatoes in leiu of regular
canned tomatoes on several ocasions. Was
outstanding both ways.
this was wonderful. the leftovers were even more flavourful the next day. i did use a bag of frozen okra, and added a can of corn, some cajun spice, garlic, and to speed it up i added a teaspoon of cornstarch for viscosity. a perfect compliment to cornmeal crusted catfish. took no time at all.
i'd also make this as a vegetarian main -dish stew and add more tomatoes and a can of chickpeas.
