Louisiana Gumbo Of Chicken And Shrimp.

5 medium shrimp
5 chicken wings
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
5 medium garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 ounces smoked sausage, such as andouille or Polish sausage, 1/4-inch slices
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped green onion
4 to 6 okra cleaned and cut in half
1 (14.5 ounces) can diced tomatoes in juice
4 bay leaves and some fresh thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
2 cups long-grain rice
I chopped Jalapeno pepper .
Saute the chicken for a few minutes then add the sausage and shrimp. Cook for a minute or two then remove the shrimp and keep in a warm place. Add all the vegetables and allow to cook for five minutes or so until all the flavors are combined. add the rice then add the garlic and herbs, mix well in the pot and keep cooking until flavors combine then add water (about 2 to 1) and let cook over a slow to medium heat. Add the tomatoes at this point.
When rice is cooked add the shrimp and some chopped scallions. Let sit for a while and then serve in bowls with plenty of bread.
You will need some gumbo file which is a Louisiana spice mixture that you will find in the store. You can also do without it or make your own.
