Smothered Shrimp and Okra

SUBMITTED BY: Maria Gaskins

Olive or cooking oil
1 lb. fresh cut okra, sliced about 1/4 inch thick
3 tomatoes, diced
1 onion, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
Salt, pepper and cayenne to taste
1/2 lb. peeled shrimp seasoned with Cajun seasoning


Pour just enough oil to slightly cover bottom of heavy-bottomed pot. Add all ingredients but shrimp.  

Smother okra on low fire for about an hour.  Stir often so as not to stick.  Once okra is smothered, add shrimp and cook until shrimp are done.
