How to Make SEAFOOD GUMBO BY SALLYE

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large heavy pot over medium heat, cook oil and flour, stirring constantly, for about 15 minutes, until you have a copper colored roux.

    Add okra, onion, celery, peppers, and garlic into pot with roux; continue cooking for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

    Add tomatoes and broth into pot and bring to a boil.

    Add seasoning and seafood into pot and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    Divide into serving bowls and top with green onions.
  • 2** You can use commercial creole seasoning such as Zatarain's if you don't want to make your own.

    For spicier gumbo, use 3 tablespoons creole seasoning or add 1 dash tabasco sauce

    You may also add 1/2 lb smoked sausage to mixture for extra flavor
  • 3Good served over cooked steamed rice.
  • 4NOTE: IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO SHELLFISH, AS MANY OF US ARE JUST SUBSTITUTE CHICKEN AND SAUSAGE FOR THE SHRIMP & CRAB.

    FROZEN OKRA IS ACCEPTABLE IF FRESH IS NOT AVALABLE. THAW IN COLANDER SO THAT LIQUID DRAINS OFF OF IT BEFORE YOU START COOKING IT.
