    Kevin Young's Note:

    This is originally a shrimp gumbo recipe, but it's gumbo, so you can add whatever turns you on. I always eat it with more than just a few dashes of Tabasco. I hope you like it.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large stockpot combine oil and flour and cook over medium-high heat about 15 minutes or until it turns very dark brown, almost between brown and black.
    2. 2
      You will have to stir almost constantly.
    3. 3
      This is called the roux.
    4. 4
      Add onions, parsley, celery, bell peppers, scallions and garlic and cook about 10 more minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring regularly.
    5. 5
      Add broth, salt, and creole seasoning.
    6. 6
      (If you like you may also add a 10 oz package of frozen okra at this point, but I despise the stuff).
    7. 7
      Cover pot and simmer 15 minutes stirring occasionally.
    8. 8
      Add your chosen combination of meat at this point and simmer an additional 10 minutes (if using whole pieces of crab like claws, or blue crab halves cook a little longer to ensure they're cooked all the way.).
    9. 9
      Ladle over steamed white rice.

      This recipe is really tasty and easy to make.One thing I changed was omitting the salt. Theres salt in the creole seasoning I use, also in the sausage.

      I whipped this up last Sunday for Monday nights dinner as it was to be a very cold day. Allowing it to sit over night in the fridge really intensived the flavors. It was very easy to put together and I did add more tabasco as we do like our dishes on the hot side. I used shimp & chicken and it was excellent. This was right on. Thanks Kevin

      Phenomenal! I was trying to "copy" a dish we had in Chicago last weekend and this recipe was it, but better! My DH & I both like more spice, so I added a little crushed red pepper and it was just wonderful. Thanks for the great recipe, Kevin!
