  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 large onion (halved, then cut into thick slices)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound okra (ends trimmed, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces)
  • 3 cloves garlic (chopped)
  • 4 cups canned chopped tomatoes (with their juices)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 links pre-cooked buffalo andouille sausage (sliced into medium-thick rounds)
  • 1/2 pound raw medium shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano (minced)
  • parsley (chopped)


  • In a deep skillet over medium-high heat, add 1½ tablespoons of oil.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the onions. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then cook, stirring frequently, for about 2 to 3 minutes. Once the onion softens and is beginning to brown, transfer to a plate.
  • Add the remaining 1½ tablespoons of oil to the skillet and stir in the sliced okra. Cook, stirring occasionally.
  • Once the okra begins to brown, add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Return the onion to the pot, then add the tomatoes and cup of water. Sprinkle with salt & pepper and stir well to combine.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, then lower the heat, cover, and simmer for about 45 minutes until the okra is tender and the stew has thickened.
  • Stir in the sliced sausage and shrimp. Cook until the shrimp just turns opaque and the sausage is heated through, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove the stew from heat and sprinkle with oregano and parsley.
