Charred Shrimp and Okra Bowl
We love a great gumbo, but the dish can feel a little too hearty for warm summer days. This dish keeps the classic elements of gumbo but with a fresh identity. Traditional? No. Completely delicious? Yes! It’s important to set your oven rack about 6 inches from the heat, usually the second position. This is close enough that the vegetables and shrimp will crisp and far away enough that they won’t burn. Use Cajun seasoning (a robust mixture of dried herbs, garlic powder, red pepper, and paprika) on any grilled main.
