    A current resident of McKinney, TX, I was born and raised in Louisiana and spent most of my 54 years there. I’ve enjoyed Cajun cuisine from almost every backyard dive and fancy five-star restaurant from Shreveport to Grand Isle. There are many great chefs from that state, e.g., Paul Prudhomme, Justine Wilson, Leah Chase, Emeril Lagasse, etc. Many have passed on. Some were formerly educated in the culinary arts, and some were not.

    I can honestly say there is no better chef alive today who can bring out the Louisiana food culture than Justin Boudreaux. This Smothered Okra with Shrimp and Sausage recipe is one of my family’s favorites! Just follow the recipe with no deviations…it’ll turn out perfect and delicious every time!
