Crab & Okra Gumbo


  • 4 hard-shell crab
  • 1 pound shrimp, cooked
  • 1/2 pound ham
  • 2 T oil
  • 2 T flour
  • 3 slices bacon
  • 6 ounces tomato paste or 14 oz can tomatoes
  • 4 scallions
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped fine or pressed
  • 1 1/2 quarts hot water
  • 1 pound okra, cut small
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste


Yield: 6 to 8 servings. Clean the crabs, remove all meat from claws and body, and cut into pieces, each crab will make 4 to 6 pieces. Shell the shrimp. Cut ham and bacon into small pieces. Mix the flour and oil in a pot. When brown add bacon and ham. Cook for a few minutes, and add crab and shrimp. Let this mixture cook until it becomes a good brown. Add onion and garlic to crab and shrimp. Pour in water slowly, then add okra, seasonings and tomato paste. Cook slowly, stirring frequently, about 1 hour, or until it begins to thicken. A lid should be kept on the pot. Serve hot with dry, cooked rice. If it gets too thick, more water can be added.
