This was delicious and I pretty much followed the recipe exactly:
Adding flavor (pretty sure I just used Cajun seasoning; no time to make the Essence)
Adding the cream (I used FF half & half)
(I get my crawfish at Publix in the frozen seafood section)
Not a very pretty plate (ha) but this okra is to-die-for!! I was very skeptical of roasted (and not fried) okra but, let me tell ya. I tossed the okra in a bowl with all the ingredients, plus some cornmeal for crunch, and roasted these little suckers until tender. I flipped often to ensure crispiness. Yummers!!
