Default Seafood Gumbo!

Helped my Mom with a huge pot of gumbo for family that come down from Ohio. The entire local family also showed up for some reason too. I you could say Momma's big pot of gumbo is a yearly big deal. I supplied the shrimp, little brother got the blue crabs, and Momma put the love in it.




This 7 gallon pot is at full capacity!

Ya'll asked for plated shots so hear ya go. Pictures really don't do gumbo much justice though. One of those things that taste a thousand times better than it looks.

First helping!



Seconds!

OK, so I'm guessing a recipe is out of the question. Maybe I can just borrow your mom?

This is just brutal to look at. I NEED it. I'm heading down to Mississippi next weekend to visit some friends. I'll be hunting for something that looks just like that...

I wish everyone could borrow my Momma for a day! The world would definitely benefit from her humor and kindness as well.

Just have to know how to make a dark roux (I haven't mastered this yet) and use okra to thicken. Somehow the okra slime and roux come together for a smooth velvety texture (another feat I have yet to master). Other than that I know it has canned stewed tomato (fresh tomato's texture does't meld well), canned tomato, celery, bay leaves, and gumbo file powder (pronounced fee lay). Most of my help comes at the end. I'm good at putting the shrimp and crabs in. Haha!

Not sure about the exact measurements. Might sound strange, but I've never wanted to actually get the recipe from my Momma because it is just so special when she makes it. She has assured me that it is in her recipe book if anything were to ever happen to her. I'm sure I can get it close to how her's turns out. I have no sisters and my brothers don't cook so I guess everyone will look to me to carry on the tradition.

It ended up being an awesome day with family. Only about 3 inches of gumbo left in that pot also!

Would your Daddy happen to be from Louisiana? Cause that's exactly the way we do it. The bay leaf is all!
