Cochon's Shrimp and Deviled Egg Gumbo

This is a great recipe for a Super bowl Party. It uses two great party dishes gumbo and deviled eggs. By combining the tradition of the prairie Cajuns' adding hardboiled eggs and potato salad into one component the traditional becomes different and exciting.

Buy whole shrimp for the recipe and take the time to peel them, saving the shells for the stock. Roast the shells with a rough chopped onion, carrot and celery stalk, cover with water and simmer for 45 minutes for the shrimp stock. You could use chicken stock or water but the extra effort is incredibly rewarding.

Ingredients:
• 1 cup vegetable oil
• 1 cup flour
• 1 cup diced onion
• 1 cup diced green pepper
• 2/3 cup diced celery
• 4 oz dried Louisiana shrimp
• 4 pounds fresh whole Louisiana shrimp
   (use the heads and shells to make stock)
• 2 pounds okra cut into 1/2" rounds
• 3 quarts shrimp stock
• 1 tablespoon minced garlic
• 5 bay leaves
• 1 tablespoon salt
• 1 tablespoon black pepper
• 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
• 1 teaspoon white pepper
• 1 tablespoon dry thyme
• dash hotsauce

Method of Preparation:
In a heavy pot make a dark red-brown roux over medium high heat with the oil and flour stirring constantly. As soon as the right color is achieved add the vegetables to stop the cooking. Be careful not to splash on yourself. Add the dried shrimp, garlic, herbs and spices and mix.

Gradually add the shrimp stock and bring to a simmer stirring constantly. Skim off the fat that comes to the top and simmer for 1 hour.

Sear the okra over high heat in a large pan with vegetable oil until no longer "snotty." Add the fresh shrimp and okra and adjust the seasoning.

Serve in a bowl with a generous helping of rice and a deviled egg floated on top and a pinch of green onions. It is also good with potato salad or plain hard boiled eggs.

Deviled eggs:

Ingredients:
• 9 hard boiled eggs cut in half
• ½ small onion diced
• ½ cup mayo
• 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
• ½ pound boiled shrimp rough chopped
• dash cayenne pepper
• salt and pepper
• hotsauce

Combine the yolks, onion, mayo and mustard in a bowl and mash with a fork. Add the shrimp and seasonings adjusting to taste.
