Take a culinary stroll down Bourbon Street with our authentic shrimp gumbo. We start with the "holy trinity" of Louisiana cooking: bell peppers, onions, and celery, and douse them in a rich Creole broth. The dish is topped with shrimp and paired with rice to warm and satisfy with a pleasant kick.

    Prepare the Rice

    Bring a medium pot with 2 cups of lightly salted water and rice to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low and cover with a lid. Cook rice for another 15-20 minutes, or until rice is tender and all water is absorbed. Remove from heat and keep covered until ready to serve.

Remove membrane (spiny white innards) and seeds from green pepper and the cut into a dice. Mince garlic. Rinse shrimp and pat dry.

    Saute the Vegetables

    In a small bowl, whisk bouillon cube together with 1 cup of warm water until dissolved. Set aside. In a medium pan over medium heat, add 1 tsp. olive oil, garlic, onion, celery, okra, and bell pepper and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.

    Make the Gumbo

    Remove the pan with vegetables from the heat and stir in the flour until the vegetables are completely coated. Slowly add the bouillon broth, diced tomatoes, and gumbo file, and stir until flour is completely absorbed. Return pan to stove and cook at medium-low heat for 8-10 minutes, or until gumbo has reduced and thickened. Taste and add salt and pepper and Frank's Red Hot if desired. If gumbo is too thick, add 1 Tbsp. of water at a time to thin it.
