      This was a really tasty and pretty healthy meal. I added some cajun seasoning for a little kick, and had to use frozen worked out fine. A definate keeper recipe.

      An outstanding quick meal. I used 1 cup of okra and being a little shy on shrimp, added in some cooked diced white meat chicken. The salt and pepper became Cajun seasoning. It was served on top of brown rice and a salad on the side.

      this is great- i'll double it next time so i have leftovers for lunch. i omitted the okra but used a red pepper in it's place and served with hot sauce on the side, a keeper.
