big jim's seafood gumbo recipe

I made this as much as i could according to Big Jim's recipe over at bigoven.  Over there i uploaded a different picture.  I couldn't get any fresh okra, so that was missing.  Next time, either find a substitute or make this when okra is available.  Nor did i have any fresh cayenne peppers; and if i could have gotten any probably would not have had the courage to use them.  Instead i used 3 evil looking peppers of which i don't  know the heritage.   Well the gumbo was quite hot enough.  I though it was delicious ... Denise liked it too.

Gumbo is another of my favorites.  I use Rachael Ray's recipe. Any smoked sausage works. Frozen okra works - no difference. I put shrimp & leftover rock fish in it the last time. I put tabasco instead of Louisiana hot sauce & left out the cayenne. Most of the time I make it too hot.  This time even the dog loved the last spoonful over his kibble.
slurp!

What all do you put in the stock?
lol ... well there in lies a tail. i started with already peeled shrimp and just crab meat ... so i couldn't do it the way they did over at big oven ... ok ok ... so i got a jar of oysters ... put that in about 1 qurt of water and mashed it up a bit and boiled it a bit and added some Squid brand fish sauce that i had around from the great mall of china. it sure tasted like fish stock to me, but i'm sure a purest would quibble.

Seafood Gumbo at New Orleans restaurant, Pioneer Square, Seattle WA. The menu said "A hearty tomato-based stew served with a mound of rice" ... and that it was ... good value for only $6.50.  I served mine with the mound (well a bit more than just a little mound) under the stew and no tomato in the recipe.  There's "stew" was thicker, more creamy, more like gravey ... i could do that, just don't dilute the rue quite so much.
