Smothered Okra with Shrimp & Crabmeat is a Creole style dish of okra, crab meat and shrimps cooked in tomatoes,herbs and spices like cayenne, paprika, celery, thyme and oregano.
Okra, Shrimp and Crab Meat, who would ever think of combing these ingredients together? Well the Creole people and it is surprisingly good. I know okra is not for everyone since not everybody likes that slimy texture but if you will have to try at least one okra dish then this has to be it. For some reason it is not as slimy as other okra dishes as the crab meat sort of absorbs it, this dish is also full of flavour, cooking it with Creole seasoning, tomatoes, onions, celery, and bell peppers makes it really tasty.
