Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • For roux, in a heavy Dutch oven stir together flour and oil until smooth. Cook and stir constantly over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until the roux is dark reddish-brown.

  • Stir in onion, celery, green and red sweet pepper, and garlic into roux. Cook about 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring frequently. Add broth, okra, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Simmer, covered, 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Stir in sausage; heat through. Add shrimp, rice, green onions, and heavy cream; cook 2 to 4 minutes or until shrimp are opaque, stirring frequently.


To Editor: I have ranged number of servings since I'm estimating yield, but I know your test kitchen will adjust. Also, I predict a few of these will need added salt.
