Seafood Gumbo


I decided to make gumbo for dinner tonight and found your recipe. And it did not disappoint! I also watched your video (as I have never made gumbo before). I found your recipe and video easy to follow and you connect with your audience so well I enjoyed watching the making of the gumbo as much as I enjoyed cooking it myself... Thank you! ~ Ginger



– Heat the oil in a large pot. Swirl in the flour and stir until the flour is incorporated, forming a roux. Stir the roux. It will darken to a peanut butter color to a light chocolate color.


– Add the onion, peppers, celery, garlic and okra. Stir the mixture often until the okra is no longer slimy.


– Stir in the beer, seafood stock, Cajun seasonings, cayenne pepper, salt, thyme, bay leaves, Worcestershire and hot sauce. – Bring the pot to a quick boil, reduce the heat and simmer.


– When nearly ready to serve, add in the shrimp, fish, crab and oysters. Cook until all the seafood has cooked through. – Stir in the fresh parsley.


– Serve the seafood gumbo into bowls with rice and top with fresh chopped parsley, spicy chili flakes, spicy chili oil, and extra hot sauce if desired.
