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
