My Seafood Gumbo (pics)

First made a fish stock with bones/head. Usually I make shrimp stock with the shells, but I bought already peeled shrimp to make it easier.


Then cut up veggies. Green onion, bell pepper and parsley fresh from my garden.




Then the roux, but no pics cuz I gotta stir constantly (plus drinking too much). Usually I make a very dark roux but the last two times I had problems incorporating the stock with the roux (separated)so I went lighter this time and it worked out OK.

Put veggies into the lava roux and sweated about 8 min, then ladled the stock into the roux/veggie mix while stirring about a cup at a time until blended. Get to simmer and adjust seasonings and let roll 1.5 hrs. I also added the oyster liquor from a 1/2 gallon tub.





Controversial: I usually add a large can of whole tomatoes and smash them with my spoon. All I had was a can of 'crushed tomatoes' which is really just thick tomato sauce so not what I really wanted, but I used it anyway.

Added shrimp, 1/2 gal oysters and 1 lb. crab meat 20 min before serving. Over rice.

Never okra. I hate slime.

Okra don't slime if you cook it first in a seperate pan. Then add. To each his own. I eat it both ways.

Gumbo looks good man.

I bought catfish bones/heads from Tony's. 2 lbs at .30/lb. So about .70 cents total.

I know I know. But the whole tomatoes really I guess are more of a family tradition and I like the occasional small bit of tomato in the spoon. I'm not a big fan of tomato sauce though, but oh well, WTF.

Looks more like a shrimp creole dish than gumbo. Gumbo is brown, not red.

Obviously not what some prefer. You have more of the New Orleans creole style gumbo going on there.

I definitely would not turn down an offered bowl, but I prefer the more Acadiana style, dark brown gumbos.
