Seasoned pepper is the key to adding a spice cabinet’s worth of flavor in just a few shakes.

 

Preparation

Step 1

Heat 4 Tbsp. oil in a medium pot over medium-high. Add onion, celery,  okra, bell peppers, and chopped garlic, sauté approximately 30 minutes. Stir constantly, until okra is crisp-tender and has lost most of its gumminess.

 

Step 2

Add chicken stock and tomatoes, bring to a simmer and cook until flavors come together, about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

 

Step 3

Add shrimp and continue to cook just until cooked through, about 15–20 minutes.

Season to taste.

 

Notes:

Making a Roux: Making a roux is time-consuming and needs to be watched carefully. It can burn easily, so stir it often.

If it burns, you have to throw it out and start all over again.
