Seafood Gumbo

Seafood Gumbo

Start with a dark brown Roux
Just like those Cajuns do

Next add the bell pepper and onion too
Tomatoes and garlic cloves, just a few

Cover it all with chicken stock
as this will help the flavors to unlock

File' and smoked sausage now go into the pot
Add the crab meat and peeled shrimp that were freshly caught

Serve it over a cup of rice
You'll find the that it tastes real nice

Put in enough pepper to set your mouth aglow
Now eat up that bowl of seafood gumbo
