Top Review by Karen Elizabeth

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
