      Title: Seafood gumbo
 Categories: Seafood, Soups
      Yield: 8 Servings
      2 lb Shrimp
      1 pt Oysters
    1/2 lb Crabmeat, fresh or frozen
      2 tb Oil
      2 tb Flour
      3 c  Okra, or 1 T gumbo file'
      2 ea Onions, chopped
      1 cn Tomatoes, 16 oz.
      2 qt Water
      1 ea Bay Leaf
      1 ts Salt
      3 ea Garlic pods (optional)
    1/8 ts Red Pepper (optional)
   Peel shrimp before cooking & devein. Make a roux... use oil and
  flour in a heavy iron skillet. Over medium-low heat, place flour in
  the oil and let cook , slow , until the flour starts to brown. Adjust
  heat so that the flour does not burn. You want the flour to turn dark
  brown, stir as needed but, keep dat flour from burning.
   When you are satisfied that the roux is as dark as possible without
  burning, add the cleaned shrimp to it for a few minutes, stiring
  constantly. Set the shrimp/roux mixture aside.
   Smother okra in another 2 T of oil, along with the chopped onions.
  Add can of tomatoes when the okra is nearly cooked. Then add water,
  bay leaf, garlic, salt and pepper. Add shrimp and roux to this
  mixture and let cook slowly for 20-30 minutes.
   Add oysters and crabmeat, cook for another 10-15 minutes.
   NOTE: If ya don't use okra, you can use gumbo file', which is crushed
  sassafras leaves, available in the spices rack of the grocery store.
  When using file' instead of okra, add it only after the heat is
  off... don't simmer or boil file'... it gets stringy. Let gumbo stand
  a few minutes after adding file' before serving. Serve over cooked
