Wonderful! I did add meat (chicken) and scallops (the only frozen seafood I had) and it turned out great. Added much more Louisiana Hot Sauce as we like it spicy. Will definitely make again. Thanks! Update - made again, this time used scallops and some leftover venison roast. Delicious, again. Used 1 T Franks hot sauce and more okra, brown rice. Yum!
