DIRECTIONS

  • Combine onions, peppers, tomatoes and their juice, and tomato sauce in a heavy 8 quart pot.
  • Cook on medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add thyme, garlic, bay leaves, salt and pepper; blend well, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add okra. When okra is bright in color and is cooked but still crisp, add stock. Bring to a rapid, rolling boil, then lower heat.
  • Add shrimp, oysters, and crab meat and simmer for 15 minutes longer.
  • Combine filé powder with 1 cup of the soup. Remove gumbo from heat and stir in the file'-soup mixture. Correct seasoning to taste.
  • Served over cooked rice and season to taste with Tabasco sauce.
