Seafood Gumbo
Step 1 boiling the goodies 3 lbs shrimp and 6 clusters of crab:
I used snow crab this time, just because I have always wanted too. Just as good Blue Crab IMO and easier to pick out/clean.


Saute the Trinity...a couple cups each onion bell pepper and 1/2 cup carrot.




Before roux:


Roux is the most important part.
Blond:


Brick...just right for me:


Roux done and tempered:


Good eats:

Looks great. All you need now is some good bread, wine, and a nimble handed lady to pick out those shrimps and crabs.

There is a store next door to Swanky's Taco Shop at Poplar and Kirby. You can go in and sniff/taste just about everything they have. They're extremely friendly and helpful.

Say what you want about Memphis vs. Nashville, but we gots a Penzey's \:D

My secret to roux is using duck fat instead of butter. You do have to be more careful though, duck fat will burn at a lower temp then butter.

Penzey's will make you throw away every grocery store "spice" you have and drop about $300 replacing them. It's incredible the dramatic difference in quality.

My biggest problem to Penzeys is that some of their spices are salted. Since I like to mix & match a lot of my seasonings, it can be difficult to control the salt level. I think they're talking about offering everything as a salt-free version because of this.

I saw a lot of salt free stuff advertized on their website.

I have some venison Andouille sausage that is screaming for some attention. I think you guys have motivated me to make some gumbo in the near future.

I get several packs of it made each year at Dino's in Memphis. It's tasty stuff! I often times just slice them open and put them on the grill. Never any complaints!

The roux looks a little "lumpy" or more solid than the roux I make. Mine is a little more liquid like that yours. Maybe I need to make it more like yours!

BTW, I'm not much for seafood. But your gumbo looks good enough for me to get over my distaste for seafood. Looks good!

moondog, the lumps in the last roux pictures is likely bits of celery/onion/bell pepper. I add several ladles of the gumbo(or seafood soup at that point) to to the very hot roux to temper it before adding it all to the main pot.
