      I enjoyed this, colourful and appealing. I know that I CAN get okra here, I've seen it, but when I wanted to make this recipe I hunted high and low with no success, so I had to use zucchini -- I'm sorry about that, I'm sure it changes the dish a bit, but, we found it very good! So thank you, MarraMamba! Made for International Agents of QUEST, USA Southern Region

      Like ev, I had to use frozen okra but it turned out great. It's down south delicious and took me back a long way. So glad I chose to make this for Culinary Quest 2014. The shrimp were a welcome addition and complimented everything else wonderfully. I think I had more than one serving but it was all on one plate with no return trips to the dish so that makes it one serving.....right?. Be that as it may, I'll most certainly be making this again.

      This was a tasty and easy lunch today. I used a 1 lb bag of frozen 'baby' okra, so no topping or tailing needed which made everything easy-peasy. The finished dish was a little on the bland side, so we spritzed with fresh lemon wedges at table, which really brought the dish up a notch, imo. Thanks!
