Quick Shrimp "Gumbo"

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Zewbiedoo

No roux. My DH came up with this gumbo-like dish when our garden was overflowing with fresh okra. Whips up quickly and is great served with rice.

I have to be honest here . . . I don't care if you call this "stew" or "gumbo". I call it "fantastic"!!! We loved the flavor and it is so filling and satisfying. I served over a bed of hot rice as suggested. You can't go wrong with this great dish!
