DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • You will have to stir almost constantly.
  • This is called the roux.
  • Add onions, parsley, celery, bell peppers, scallions and garlic and cook about 10 more minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring regularly.
  • Add broth, salt, and creole seasoning.
  • (If you like you may also add a 10 oz package of frozen okra at this point, but I despise the stuff).
  • Cover pot and simmer 15 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • 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.).
  • Ladle over steamed white rice.
