Easy Recipe for Seafood Gumbo

Ingredients

  1. 1/2 pound sliced bacon, diced
    2 stalks celery, sliced (1 1/2 cups)
    1 medium onion, sliced (1 cup)
    1 green pepper, chopped (1 1/2 cups)
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    2 cups chicken broth
    1 14-ounce can diced tomatoes
    2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    2 teaspoons kosher salt
    1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
    1 pound large raw shrimp, cleaned
    1 pound fresh or frozen crabmeat
    1 10-ounce box frozen okra, thawed and sliced crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces

Directions

  1. Cook the bacon over medium heat in a heavy saucepan until crisp, stirring frequently. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel.
  2. Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the fat, then add the vegetables (except the okra), 4 cups of broth, Worcestershire, salt, and thyme. Cover and simmer over medium heat for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the okra and cook 10 minutes longer.
  4. Stir in the shellfish and cook 5 minutes more, or until the shrimp curl and turn pink.
