Laure’s Shrimp Gumbo

My cousin Laure lives on the gulf coast. As my grandmother got older and less able to cook a Thanksgiving feast for the family, Laure started a new tradition. She would prepare seafood dishes like this one and take them to Grandma’s to serve the family. We now congregate at her house every year.

This stew of tomatoes, onion, celery, okra, and shrimp is thickened with a roux and seasoned with Old Bay, thyme, bay leaves, and garlic.

Red Snapper Stew

This is one of the first dishes that Guy and I made together. You coat the fish with a paste made from garlic, parsley, and spices. Sauté onion and bell peppers in butter, add diced tomatoes, and then the fish, shrimp, and okra. Simmer until done and serve with rice.
