How to make Seafood Gumbo – Chef Kendra’s Easy Cooking!


Hey Cookaholics Chef Kendra here and as promised
here’s the results from the poll we took. First I’d like to thank you guys for taking
the time to vote. OK, I had two no’s. Three people like whatever and I had 102 people
who want us to keep doing the intros before the actual cooking. For the two people who don’t want to see my
face. Lo siento. What I learned from the video is that you actually don’t mind a little chit
chat before the actual cooking begins and that’s kind of cool. Alright, what are we cooking today? We are
cooking gumbo. If you like seafood gumbo, wait, let me repeat that. If you like seafood
gumbo you’ll going to like this seafood gumbo and actually the idea for the gumbo came to
me from this viewer. We’re using shrimp and fish and we’re going
to make a nice roux. It’s going to be delicious. And we’re going to serve it all over rice. So let’s do what we do. Let’s head into the
kitchen and make it happen. We have our trusty ingredients waiting for
us. If only it really worked like that. We’re going to get our oil into a large pot under
medium heat. Then we’re going to add some flour, just like so. Next in, and it’s optional
is file powder. Sometimes it can be hard to find. Let’s stir
this up. We’re going to be doing a lot of stirring here guys; we’re going to go from
blond, to caramel color, to milk chocolate. Boom. We’re basically going to be stirring the whole
time. It’s important to get your roux dark but sometimes people carry it too far and
they’re gumbo taste burnt. Then in goes our onions and garlic. And the next thing we’re
adding in celery and bell pepper. It’s going to become a little aggressive with
you, but like most bullies it’ll back down when you stand up to it. So give it a robust
stir. After we stir this up for a minute of 2 you’ll
notice the color change, we’ll add the parsley, our oregano, cayenne pepper, some tabasco
sauce, our clam juice goes in, and water. We’re going to stir every once in a while
and let it cook for 5 minutes. Then it’ll change colors again, now this is when we add
our raw seafood. We’re going to add our fish and our shrimp
and mix those boys in well. After we’ve done that we’re going to pour ourselves a beverage
and wait for the seafood to cook. You want to turn off the heat as soon as the
seafood is done because you don’t want to overcook it, now do you? Check for seasonings,
add salt and pepper and that’s all it is to it. I’m going to taste this. Look at that. This
is amazing. I killed this ya’ll this is delicious. It’s rich. Has that rich deep nutty flavor.
That beautiful shrimp and fish. Umm. Hey guys I hope you enjoyed that. The link
