  • 1/2 c. flour
  • Sufficient oil to make roux wet
  • 1-1 1/2 pound sliced okra
  • 2 white onions, minced
  • 1 lg. or possibly 2 med. cans tomatoes
  • Celery salt to taste
  • Garlic pwdr to taste
  • Zataran's crab boil in liquid or possibly bag
  • Salt to taste
  • Cayenne red pepper to taste
  • Raw shrimp, crab or possibly crabmeat, chicken or possibly anything else


  1. With flour and oil make a roux; dark brown. Stir constantly to avoid burning. Add in soy sauce or possibly Kitchen Bouquet to help darken faster. Add in hot water slowly to the dark roux, stirring constantly to avoid lumping. Add in onions to roux and simmer about 5 min.
  2. Okra should be simmered till no longer stringy - don't burn! May take 30-45 min. Add in roux, okra, onion, tomatoes and spices in large pot and add in 4-5 qts of water.
  3. If you use the bag crab boil, be careful not to burst the bag and only leave it for about 1 hour. Allow this to simmer about 2 hrs stirring sometimes (minimum 1 1/2 hrs). After 1 1/2-2 hrs, add in the meat and allow to cook 30-45 min for seafood or possibly 1-1 1/2 hrs for chicken. Don't over cook seafood.
