How to make it
- In a large, heavy pot, over medium-low heat, melt the butter and add the flour. Stirring often, cook until the foam subsides and the mixture turns a golden color, like sandpaper, 10 to 12 minutes. Add the onions, celery and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until soft and golden, about 15 minutes.
- Add the bell peppers and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add the water and stir to blend and the mixture thickens. Add the shrimp and stir to mix. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp turn pink, 5 to 7 minutes.
- Add the salt, Tabasco, and black pepper and continue cooking for 5 to 7 minutes longer. Add the green onions and the parsley, and the crabmeat. Don't stir or you'll break up the crabmeat. Gently shake the pot, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and let it rest (with the lid on the pot) for about 5 minutes.
- Serve over the rice
