This "N'awlins" inspired hearty one pot recipe for Shrimp Gumbo takes advantage of all the down-in-the-Bayou seasonings and flavors. Turn it into a seafood style gumbo by simply alternating the shrimp for other seafood or fish.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 1 medium-sized green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 (14.5-ounce) cans diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 cup frozen okra, thawed
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled, deveined, and tails removed
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot, melt butter over medium heat.
     
  2. Add onion, celery, green pepper, and garlic, and cook 5 minutes, or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
     
  3. Stir in flour, chili powder, salt, and cayenne pepper, and cook 1 minute. Add tomatoes, okra, and water and simmer 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
     
  4. Add shrimp and cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until shrimp are pink. Serve immediately.

Notes:

Served over rice or with some crusty bread for dunking and you've got a complete meal. We've got a great recipe for Cheesy Herbed Onion Bread that will be a great go-along with this!
