I personally had the urge to add more onion and I just had to add garlic. I couldn't see adding the corn as I'm not very much of a corn lover. It's a great recipe. Read More

Disappointing. The vegetables were still cruncy - try cooking for 20 minutes before adding the shrimp. The flavors were a little uninteresting - probably could have used some garlic. I used canned corn a large can of diced tomatoes and more okra than the recipe called for plus some red pepper flakes for some more heat. Read More

Okra shrimp and corn - what could be better! This definitely has to have garlic in it at least at my house. I used stewed tomatoes with chilis instead of fresh and threw in a little white wine because I liked the idea. The only thing wrong with the instructions was the part about "chill before serving". It tasted too good to wait that long! Read More

We love this recipe! I change a few things though. We add summer sausage and chicken instead of shrimp. I also dice up a jalapeno or two and toss in the mix. I use onions instead of shallots and add an extra red bell pepper. After cooking it all up we serve it over rice...very tasty! Read More
