Ingredients

How to make it

  • Heat oil in a large iron Dutch Oven over high heat until almost smoking. Add flour, stirring constantly until you get a dark red-brown rue, about 8 minutes (don't burn). Immediately add celery, onions and bell peppers. Cook 5 minutes, stirring and scraping bottom of pan often. Mix in bay leaves, salt, oregano and cayenne. Add clam juice, canned tomatoes and sausage. Boil 15 minutes. Add okra, reduce heat and simmer until okra is tender, about 15 minutes. (Can be made 1 day ahead). Cover and chill to let the flavors merge.
  • Bring to simmer before continuing. Add shrimp to gumbo and simmer until just cooked through, about 3 minutes. Ladle over rice and top with tomatoes.
