Smoked Turkey Gumbo















Low in Saturated Fat, Low Cholesterol, Cholesterol-Free, Trans-fat Free, Low Sodium


1 each turkey
10 cups water
1 each onions
3 each parsley sprigs
1 each bay leaves
¼ cup vegetable oil
¼ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup onions
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon thyme
¼ teaspoon oregano
2 pounds shellfish
2 cups long grain rice


Place the carcass in a stock pot, breaking it up, if necessary, to make it fit.

Add water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and skim off any foam that comes to the surface.

Add the sliced onion, celery, parsley, thyme sprig and bay leaf; simmer, uncovered, skimming occasionally, for 2 to 4 hours.

Do not let the stock boil or it will turn cloudy.

Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet (preferably cast iron), over medium heat.

Stir in the flour and cook, stirring and scraping the entire bottom of the pan at least every 10 seconds, until the resulting roux cooks to a deep mahogany color, 10 to 15 minutes.

Adjust the heat to prevent scorching, which can give a bitter taste.

Turn off the heat and continue stirring a minute or two until the mixture no longer gets darker on the bottom.

Carefully stir in the diced vegetables tables; don't let the roux splatter it can cause nasty burns.

Stir to coat the vegetables evenly with roux; stir in the chile powder, salt, pepper, herbs and cayenne; set aside.

Strain the stock, let it stand until the fat rises to the top, and skim off the fat.

Bring 8 cups of the stock to a boil in a large pot, stir in the roux vegetable mixture and simmer until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes.

Add the shrimp, crab and/or oysters and simmer just until done, about 5 minutes.

Taste for seasoning and correct if necessary.

Serve in soup bowls over small scoops of rice.
