    MMM! This was very good and unique! I made the following changes: canned corn, 2 cans of diced tomatoes, petite salad shrimp, and omitted bay leaf and chile pepper. I did add red pepper for the spice! This was very good! Thanks!  -  21 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I personally had the urge to add more onion and I just had to add garlic. I couldn't see adding the corn as I'm not very much of a corn lover. It's a great recipe.  -  29 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Disappointing. The vegetables were still cruncy - try cooking for 20 minutes before adding the shrimp. The flavors were a little uninteresting - probably could have used some garlic. I used canned corn, a large can of diced tomatoes, and more okra than the recipe called for, plus some red pepper flakes for some more heat.  -  13 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
