I saw a guy make this on TV a few years ago, and have adapted the recipe a few times since then. Smoked Turkey and Seafood Gumbo 3/4 cup vegetable oil 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 2 cups yellow or white onions, chopped 1/2 cup green bell peppers, chopped 1/2 cup celery, chopped (optional - Hickboy hates celery) 2 cups okra, sliced in 1/2" pieces 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined 1/2 lb lump crab meat 2 dozen oysters 1 tablespoon salt 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1/2 pound smoked kielbasi (or andouille for the coonasses), chopped into 1/4" pieces 2 quarts turkey stock, made from the carcass of one smoked turkey (Shrimp stock substitutes nicely for turkey stock, but you gotta boil the turkey to get the meat off the bone, so use what works.) Reserved turkey meat from broth Reserved onions from broth 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped 2 tablespoons scallions, chopped Gumbo Filé powder. I use Zatarain's because it's all I can find in NC. Combine the oil and flour in a large cast-iron pot or Dutch oven to make a chocolate roux. In a bowl, season the onions, optional celery, okra, and bell peppers with the salt and cayenne. Add to the roux and cook, stirring, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the sausage and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Add the cooled broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 45 minutes. Add the reserved turkey meat and the reserved onions and celery and cook for 12-15 minutes. Add the shrimp and crab, then the parsley and green onions. Remove from the heat and adjust the seasoning to taste. ADD THE OYSTERS AT THE VERY LAST SECOND BEFORE YOU BRING THE GUMBO TO THE TABLE! I have been known to just put them in sauce bowls at each place setting and let folks add them at the table. I like my oysters with a minimum of cooking, and many others do, too. Serve over rice, with an appropriate hot bread on the side. Set out gumbo filé on the table so everybody can add however much they want. I do put hot sauce out too, but this recipe doesn't really need it due to the presence of a whole teaspoon of cayenne. Note: It has no tomatoes in it. There's a place for tomatoes, but this is not it.
