Winter backyard dinner - crawfish & okra
We get mild winters, almost like a Mediterranean type climate, so Sunday lunch was in the backyard garden. Two and a half pounds crawfish or crayfish cooked in roux and seafood broth with okra, celery, andouille sausage cut into medallions and seafood seasoning, then spooned over a bowl of steamed rice. Like crawfish, some people like okra and some don't. Okra is a super food, rich in many nutrients and low in calories. We grew up eating okra, so we like the sliminess which is perfect on gumbo. Bon appetit!
We grow more than a hundred varieties of edible plants in our backyard garden. Please join us in our journey to grow organic, explore recipes and cooking ideas and live a simple and healthy lifestyle.
