  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 pound Andouille sausage, cut into 1/4-inch slices (or smoked sausage)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 large green bell pepper, seeded and chopped

  • 2 cups frozen sliced okra
  • 1 pound small shrimp, peeled, deveined
