Seafood Gumbo

If you like Seafood Gumbo here’s a great recipe that only takes 30 mins to make and contains a whopping 4 weight watcher points for 2 cups. This recipe is super filling and really tasty. It’s 100% husband approved and that’s coming from a hubby who’s had authentic gumbo down south. I will be making this recipe again and again it was that delicious.

  • 1/2 lb shrimp, peeled and de-veined
  • 1/2 lb lump crabmeat (real crab meat not artificial)
  • 1/2 lb okra, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes

  • 2 large celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 large green pepper, seeded and chopped

  3. Make the roux by adding the butter to the skillet, and then add in the flour; stir until blended. Continue to cook, stirring constantly for about 6-8 minutes.

  5. Add in the thyme, bay leaves, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and tomatoes.
