    Shrimp Gumbo - Alton Brown. This was AMAZING! Followed directions exactly except I cooked two pounds shrimp (fresh caught gulf shrimp) and used 2 quarts shrimp stock. I also made this GF by using brown rice flour for the roux. I cooked the roux 80 minutes on convection bake. I also added a half bag of frozen okra. It served 6 adults with leftovers. Seriously delicious. It will become a company meal and sunday dinner for sure.

    Shrimp Gumbo Recipe from Alton Brown :@ Food Network. This spicy Cajun gumbo, a stew originating in Louisiana in the 18th century, gains much of its flavor from the dark roux and its characteristic thickness from file, an herb made from the ground leaves of the sassafras tree. Onions, celery and green peppers, the "holy trinity" of both Creole and Cajun cooking, add flavor and substance to the thick shrimp and sausage stew, which is served over a heaping portion of white rice.

Jess Jackson asks for this ersatz gumbo every time he visits his Kentucky farm. "He always says, 'We should have this once a week,' " Huffman says. "Then, when he's about halfway through the bowl -- 'OK, twice a week.' It's not authentic gumbo, but Creole flavors have crept up to Kentucky."

Shrimp Gumbo Recipe : Alton Brown : Food Network - Very labor intensive, you make your own seafood broth, it calls for head on shrimp, and it takes awhile with the roux. It's supposedly "lighter" than traditional gumbo though.

The preparation of this shrimp dish is super simple – I just toss everything into a zip-top bag and let it marinate in the fridge for about 30 minutes. The shrimp grill up in minutes and are full of flavor. They pair perfectly with grilled asparagus and steamed rice.
