Today’s Menu: Shrimp and Scallop Gumbo
Slowly becoming one of my favorites, Shrimp and Scallop Gumbo! Added an extra ingredient this time, I added Craw Fish Tail Meat. It made a great Gumbo just a little bit better! I made a huge pot full. Enough for leftovers for tomorrow and also to freeze enough for a couple of servings. I listed the recipe below.
1 Pound of Shrimp and Sea Scallops
1 Bag of Boudreaux Crawfish Meat
4 Slices of Turkey Bacon
2 Russet Potatoes (Diced)
6 Cups of Water
2 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Pepper, Sea Salt for seasoning
1 Box of Luzianne Gumbo Dinner Kit
*Dice the Russet Potatoes and microwave for 4 minutes to soften
*Fry Bacon and set aside when done.
*In a 4-5 Quart pot,bring water and Olive Oil to a boil
*Add Luzianne Gumbo while stirring
*Empty half of the Red Pepper Packet into the Gumbo. Put remainder aside.
*Reduce Heat , Cover and simmer for 18 minutes. Meanwhile quarter the Sea Scallops, peel the raw Shrimp, and crumble the Turkey Bacon.
*Taste, and if desired, add remaining Red Pepper from packet and Sea Salt. Add the Shrimp, Scallops, Crawfish, Crumbled Turkey Bacon, and Potatoes. Cover and continue to simmer for 7 more minutes.
