Okra Sausage and Shrimp

Okra Sausage and Shrimp

I said to myself, “Coop.” Myself said, “Huh?” I said, “Look, we ain’t cooking today, ok??” Needless to say, I lied to myself. Smothered okra with green onion sausage and juicy wild caught shrimp! Yes lawwwd!!! 

I’ve been craving this since my cousin made it for Thanksgiving and I almost ate the whole pot! Didn’t take long either! And the flavor….listen, just try it!


3 cups of okra
1 lb sausage (sliced)
1 lb shrimp

1 diced onion
1 diced bell pepper
1 clove of garlic (chopped or minced)
2 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup chicken stock
1 can diced tomatoes (drained)
2 T tomato paste
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 T cajun seasoning
1 tsp Accent


Slice sausage and bake in the oven with onion, pepper, and garlic for 7-8 mins
Meanwhile, in a skillet, add okra and tomatoes and fry until slime is no longer visible
Remove sausage and veggies from the oven and add it to the okra
Stir in the tomato paste
Pour in the stock

Stir well, lower heat, and cover skillet with the lid leaving a small crack
Cook for 20 or until liquid reduces
