  1. Combine vegetable oil and flour in a large stockpot over medium heat; cook, stirring often, until roux is dark brown, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Stir onion, celery, green onion, parsley, and garlic carefully into the hot roux; it may splatter. Cook and stir until onion mixture is tender, about 5 minutes. Pour in broth. Season with salt and red chile pepper. Simmer gumbo, covered, until flavors combine, about 15 minutes.
  3. Stir shrimp into the stockpot; cook until pink and opaque, 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Place 1/3 cup rice into each serving bowl. Ladle shrimp gumbo on top. Garnish with fresh parsley.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute water for the chicken broth if desired.
  • Substitute 2 tablespoons bottled garlic for the fresh garlic cloves if desired.

The only change I made to this recipe was to add a can of diced tomatoes. Good recipe with the addition I made.
