DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil over medium heat in a deep, heavy pot until very hot.
  • Add onion and sautee until translucent.
  • Add thyme leaves, bay leaves, and garlic and stir frequently so as not to scorch the garlic about 1 minute.
  • Add tomatoes and water, and heat until the edges begin to boil.
  • Add the frozen okra and stir.
  • Cover the pot.
  • Heat about 5 minutes and check, stirring to prevent sticking and to heat through.
  • Okra will be"done" when it turns bright green in color.
  • Taste for salt and pepper and correct at this point.
  • When the okra is bright green, add the shrimp, stirring to combine.
  • Cover again and heat about 5 minutes.
  • Uncover, and stir again checking for"doneness".
  • The dish will be"done" when shrimp is opaque and firm.
  • Serve over hot rice.
  • Please note that the water measurement is approximate you may need to add a little more to get a thinner consistency.
  • Also, I watch my salt intake so I seldom add it to my recipes, so feel free to add it.
  • This dish tastes great with a dash or two of hot pepper sauce.
