DIRECTIONS

  • 5 hours before you plan to serve the gumbo, begin making the roux.
  • Combine flour and oil in a skillet and heat on medium low. Stir frequently!
  • Combine the rest of the ingredients except for the shrimp and okra in a large pot. Chicken bones and all (this will add great flavor)!
  • Heat on medium for 4 hours stirring occasionally.
  • After 4 hours, add the shrimp and okra and begin removing chicken bones as you find them.
  • Once the roux has reached a nice, dark brown color (this should take about 4 or 5 hours when done correctly), add it to the soup mixture.
  • Be careful! It will sizzle and pop.
  • In about 1 more hour, the shrimp should be fully thawed and cooked without adding a strong shrimpy flavor to the gumbo.
  • Serve over rice. Warn your guests about the potential threat of chicken bones! ;).
  • Enjoy!
