  • 3 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 pounds fresh lump crabmeat, picked over for shells and cartilage
  • 1 quart oysters, drained
  • 3 large onions - chopped
  • 3 stalks of celery - chopped

In a 10 quart pot, mix flour and oil and cook on medium heat while stirring frequently. Cook until golden brown. This should take about 30 minutes to cook to a golden brown. Add onions, celery and half of green onions to mixture and sauté for about 8 to 10 minutes until vegetables are translucent. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add oysters and let simmer for 15 minutes. Add shrimp and crabmeat to the mixture and let simmer an additional 5 minutes. Add remainder of green onions and hot sauce. Season to taste and serve over rice.
