Mommas Seafood Gumbo

Mommas Seafood Gumbo (recipe from Belinda Seal)

boil 3 qts water, and add:
1 bell pepper chopped
1 onion chopped
1 pack green onions chopped
2 bay leaves
1 cap crab boil
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tbsp parsley
salt pepper and red pepper to taste

while cooking on med heat make roux:

Make roux:
1 cup plain flour
1 cup oil

In big Microwave bowl, put flour and oil mixture together. cook for 2 minutes, stir, Cook for 1 minute, stir. Cook for 30 seconds, until thickening and browning. Don't burn it. Add roux to boiling mixture. Let cook for 45 minutes on medium heat stirring occasionally. Add seafood. I use shrimp & crab claw meat. Let cook for about 30 minutes & turn off heat. As gumbo cools, skim off oil that is sitting on top. (it will be close to the cup that you put in the roux... This takes the bitter taste out). Taste and add salt as needed. (This will also cut down on any bitterness) make sure you put LOVE in it too!

Eat over cooked rice and enjoy
