SHRIMP GUMBO

3 to 4 lbs peeled raw shrimp
1 (28 oz) can tomatoes, chopped
1/2 (10 oz) bag frozen green pepper,chopped
1 (12 oz) bag frozen chopped onion
1 lb frozen cut okra
2/3 cup vegetable oil
3 qts water
1 stick butter or margarine
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1 tsp Tabasco hot sauce
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp ground bay leaves
1 tsp chopped garlic
2 tsp salt
3/4 cup flour

In big, heavy pot, melt butter; add okra and cook on medium heat
for 15 or 20 minutes---stirring often. In another big iron pot or
skillet, heat and stir oil and flour to make a dark brown roux.
Add slightly thawed vegetables. Add a cup of hot water slowly to
the roux, stirring until smooth. Now combine the two mixtures into
the larger pot.

Add shrimp, tomatoes, water, garlic and seasonings and bring to a
boil, then lower heat and simmer about 30 minutes. Serve in bowls
over fluffy rice. Try a side dish of potato salad and serve iced
tea. Makes 12 to 15 bowls.

Although we normally use fresh vegetables, using frozen chopped
vegetables in this GUMBO will not sacrifice it's family-favorite
flavor.
