Submitted by: COUPONQUEENKS

Introduction

This was a easy Shrimp Gumbo Recipe that my family truly enjoyed and I adapted from another recipe I had on hand to make it a little more figure friendly.

Ingredients

    2 Tbsp of all-purpose flour
    2 Tbsp of canola oil
    3-4 celery ribs, chopped
    1 medium green pepper, chopped
    1 medium onion, chopped
    2 tsp of Worcestershire sauce
    1 carton (32 ounces) of fat free chicken broth
    3 garlic gloves, minced
    1 tsp of oregano
    1tsp marjoram
    1 bay leaf
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp of black pepper
    1/2 tsp cayenne pepper or a few splashes of hot sauce to taste (I like it spicy)
    2 pounds or so of uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined
    1 package (16 ounces) of frozen okra
    4 green onions, sliced
    1 medium tomato, chopped
    1.5 tsp of file powder

Directions

Makes 12-14 servings
In a stock pot over medium heat, cook and stir flour and oil until caramel-colored, about 6 minutes; be careful not to burn.
Add the celery, onion, and green pepper; cook and stir for 5-6 minutes or until tender. Stir in the broth, oregano, marjoram, bay leave, garlic, salt, pepper and cayenne; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
Stir in shrimp, okra, green onions, and tomato. Return to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until shrimp turn pink.

*If you don't have file powder, you can use 2tbsp of both cornstarch and water to thicken the gumbo. Stir it in and simmer for about 10 minutes.

*Serve over 1/2 cup of cooked brown rice
