     Title: Gulf Shrimp and Okra Gumbo

Okra is abundant this time of year, so collect your okra, tomatoes, shrimp and make a gumbo! This recipe courtesy of Louisiana Kitchen & Culture will be sure to please.



Season the shrimp with salt, pepper and cayenne to taste and set aside.

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the okra and sauté for about 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the tomato paste, tomato, onion, garlic, celery and green bell pepper and sauté for 15 more minutes. Add the water or stock and season to taste. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes.

Add the shrimp and simmer for 6 more minutes. Finally, add the green onion to the soup and stir thoroughly. Serve with rice.
