Not-very-authentic Louisiana Seafood Gumbo


Okay, I admit it, it doesn't start with a roux. But it's a family favorite and a truly superb soup as a meal, especially to you okra lovers out there. Serve hot to 4-6 people.

Fry the bacon til crisp, then remove and reserve. Add the onion, pepper, and celery to the bacon fat and saute until yellow. Add the parsley, tomatoes, and stock, and cook until all the vegetables are tender. Stir in the seafood, the okra, and the rice. Cook for 10 minutes, until the fish is just cooked.

When ready to serve, ladle into bowls and top with the reserved bacon, crumbled.
