Gumbo Shrimp

Here’s a nice little recipe I found for Crockpot Shrimp Gumbo that I would like to share with you. My kitchen is dreadfully hot this time of the year, so any crockpot recipe is a welcome change. Let me know how yours came out :)

  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • ½ pound smoked sausage, cut into ½ inch slices
  • 2 cups frozen cut okra
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 large green bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ tsp ground red cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 14 oz canned diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 pack or 12 oz frozen shelled deveined cooked medium shrimp, rinsed
  • 3 cups water

  1. In small saucepan, combine flour and oil; mix well.
  2. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium-high heat for 5 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to medium; cook, stirring constantly, about 10 minutes or until mixture turns reddish brown.
  4. Place flour-oil mixture in 3½ to 4 quart crockpot (or slow cooker).
  5. Stir in all remaining ingredients except shrimp.
  6. Cover; cook on low setting for 7-9 hours.
  7. Add shrimp to gumbo mixture in crockpot; mix well.
  8. Cover and cook on low setting for additional 20 minutes.
  9. Serve gumbo over rice. See recipe here.
