How to make it

  • Lets build our gumbo
  • I suggest you get all the chopping outof the way so you can keep y our eyes on the "Roux"
  • First make a roux in a heavy sauce pan . whisk it till the roux which is a misture of the flour and oil is just the right color of brown and I make mine dark
  • Do not leave this alsone as nothing will scorch faster then an unattended roux I have suffered many times and had to begin again
  • When the roux is right add thebell pepper the garlic,the musrooms BAY LEAFare uniformly stirred and not too crowded
  • The temperture will go down but don't trust that roux till you get the liquid intothe pot
  • ;tO MAKE A HEAVY SHRIMP STOCK REMOVE THE SHELLS A ND BIL IN A PURE WATER TILL THE WATER TURNS DARK AND SMELLS OF SHRIM
  • tHENJ uSE 2 QUARTS OF CHICKEN STOCK
  • aDD THE BAY LEAF THE OTHER VEGGIES AND THE LIQUID. iF THE ROUX IS NOT THICK ENOUGH USE THE KITCEN BOUQUET AND FLOUR AND THICKEN IT BUT NO ONE WATS A THICK THICK ROUX
  • tIME TO PUT IN THE SEAFOOD WHICH IS THE CRAWFISH TAILS WITH FAT , 6-10 GUMBO CRABS AND THE SHRIMP
  • ttHIS SHOULD BE DEVINE BUT IF YOU WANT TO ADD A LITTLE THIS OR A LITTLE THAT GO RIGHT AHEAD CAUSE GUMBO MEANS A MIXTURE OF THIS AND THAT
  • sO LONG AS YOU HAVE THE PROPER ROUX ADD WHATEVER YOU WANT
  • i SERVE THIS OVER STEAMING RICE IN A GUMBO BOWL WITH fRENCH BREAD i HAVE JUST PULLED OUT OF MY OVEN hOT
  • wANT TO COME OVER FOR DINNER?
