THE NEWSTALKERS COOKBOOK

Roux

1 cup flour

1 cup oil

First make a roux. This is a mixture of oil and flour browned slowly to a deep golden brown. Measure oil into a heavy pan or iron skillet and heat. Keep heat low to moderate. Stir in flour. Stir and stir and stir some more. Keep stirring almost constantly to prevent burning until mixture becomes golden or deep reddish brown. A good roux takes 15-30 minutes to make and the Gumbo will not be good unless the roux is right. When the roux is the right color, you're ready to go to the next step.

2 bundles (at least) green onions

1 large Bell pepper

2 or 3 ribs of celery

2 lbs. Shrimp (cleaned and deveined)

2 or 3 cloves of garlic

Salt and pepper

File~ and cooked rice

Add chopped green onions, bell pepper, celery and garlic into roux. Cook until tender. Add 3 cups of water. Then add the cleaned shrimp and simmer on low heat until shrimp turn pink. Add salt, pepper and red pepper to taste. Serve over cooked rice and season with file~. As with chicken bog, I prefer a crusty hot bread and a fresh salad with this dish.

I had Shrimp Gumbo at a small hole in the wall cafe on Bourbon Street in New Orleans when I last visited there about 15 years ago. It was just sooo good. I have always liked Shrimp Gumbo, so I am looking forward to trying your recipe.

Me too! I love getting feedback from those who try my recipes, as many times they have great ideas for other variations that would be fun to try as well. Everyone's taste buds are different, so there is always room for improvement or enhancements.

That is one of the fun parts of cooking and sharing recipes. jrSmiley_79_smiley_image.gif

Serve over cooked rice and season with file~.

Ummm,  what the hell is file~ ?  I don't seem to have anything in my spice cabinet called that.  Is it green? Red? Liquid? Tastes slightly like almonds?  help please.....
