Seafood Gumbo

Gumbos are pure comfort food with a lot of heart — this Seafood Gumbo has lots of Cajun soul but is easy to make! This post is sponsored by All-Clad.

Seafood Gumbo is Cajun comfort in a bowl. This recipe is made special with homemade shrimp stock, shrimp, scallops and is simple to make with #AllClad Prep&Cook #ad.

It was bound to happen…eventually. I knew the end was near with my food processor — the cover was chipped, and other parts were already broken, and I was kind of holding on, still using it, committed until the end. After all, we’ve been through alot together — from tiny city apartments to our first house, and now, a handful of homes later, it was still holding on.

But the end finally came and it was time to say farewell to my trusty food processor. And when I was ready, I needed to find a replacement.

All-Clad Prep&Cook is handy in the kitchen!

I consider it fate when my friends at All-Clad reached out and I learned about the All-Clad Prep&Cook. Here was a food processor that could do so much more than just chop and dice ingredients! This same small appliance can also simmer, steam, mix, blend, and so much more! I knew that I had to try it for myself, especially since I already cook with my All-Clad pots and pans every day, and love my All-Clad slow-cooker. The idea of a trusty, high quality appliance that could possibly replace so many of my other appliances was very intriguing. Just think of all the space I could save in my kitchen!

Shrimp is a must for Seafood Gumbo!

Okra makes Seafood Gumbo extra delicious.

What I quickly learned as I cooked with the All-Clad Prep&Cook is that not only could I save precious counter and cabinet space, I could also save time! I loved the idea of prepping and cooking a meal all with one appliance, and decided to really test its capabilities on a busy weeknight by making a Seafood Gumbo.

Here’s the thing about gumbos. It’s a very homey, comforting meal, but it does require a bit of prep work and lots of stirring. And while I adore my slow-cooker, I loved that the Prep&Cook could slow cook while stirring!

Prepping Ingredients in All-Clad Prep&Cook

All-Clad Prep&Cook does so much in the kitchen.

So to start, I put the Prep&Cook to test by chopping up the Creole holy trinity of onions, bell pepper and celery. Mere seconds later, I was ready to add my roux and shrimp stock, as well as the rest of my ingredients to simmer. The Prep&Cook stirred in the roux to get that perfect gumbo consistency, and since seafood cooks in such a jiffy, I had a hearty, spicy gumbo in no time!

The #AllClad Prep&Cook can do the work of a food processor, blender, stand mixer, and slow-cooker -- and made this Seafood Gumbo so easy to make, from start to finish!

I’ll admit, I’m rather smitten with this nifty new appliance. Between you and me, I kind of wish this was around earlier, especially when I was in my teeny apartment and didn’t have the space for a food processor, blender, stand mixer and slow cooker — imagine all the things I could have cooked!

#ad Weeknight suppers are challenging enough, but don’t think that gumbo is out of the question because of all the prep work! This bowl of Seafood Gumbo is super easy to make, especially with the #AllClad Prep&Cook! Made in partnership with @AllClad.

But really, more than the space I saved, what I really do appreciate is the time. Not having to worry about stirring and simmering, I was able to have dinner bubbling while helping my son with his math homework, folding laundry, responding to emails, and you know, all the 500 other things you need to do on a busy Monday night!

Instructions

Instructions for the All-Clad Prep&Cook:

  1. Peel shrimp and refrigerate the shrimp meat until ready to use. Place the shells and 2 cups of water in a saucepan with a pinch of salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes. Strain and set the shrimp stock aside.
  2. While the shrimp stock simmers, make the roux. Heat the 3 tablespoons olive oil in small, heavy saucepan over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Mix in the flour and stir constantly to make the roux. Continue cooking until the roux is a beautiful golden color, for about 15 minutes.
  3. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Brown the okra on all sides, then stir in white vinegar. Set aside.
  4. Place the onion, green onion, garlic, bell pepper, and celery in the All-Clad Prep&Cook bowl with the ultra blade knife. Mix at speed 10 for 10 seconds. Scrape down sides of bowl.
  5. Add roux to the vegetables. Simmer at P1 for 10 minutes.
  6. Add the shrimp stock, diced tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, salt, paprika, bay leaves and thyme to the bowl and simmer at P2 for 45 minutes.
  7. Add shrimp, scallops and reserved okra, and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the shrimp are pink and cooked through. Adjust the seasoning with salt, pepper and additional hot sauce, if desired.
  8. Serve over rice and garnish with green onions and cilantro.

      Some say that adding a little vinegar to okra helps to reduce the slime. But if you don’t mind (I personally am not averse to it), then you can leave it out. Hope that helps!

    Wow! What a cool, multi-purpose kitchen appliance! This might actually stay on my counter as I’d be using it all the time—and the All-Clad name means it’s quality! P.S. Your gumbo looks incredible, too.
