In a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat melt some butter and then add all-purpose flour. Stir constantly for at least 35-40 minutes. This requires patience. It should be as dark as dark chocolate and have a soft consistency. But make sure it doesn't burn. If you want you can add some more butter or oil while making the roux.
In your slow cooker add canned diced tomatoes or fresh tomatoes, chicken broth, the holy trinity of onions, celery, and bell pepper. Add garlic, Cayenne Pepper, Cajun Seasoning, and the roux. Stir well until combined.
cover and cook on low heat for 6 hours or on high for 3 hours.
Open the lid and add shrimps. Cover and cook on high for an additional 30-minutes.
Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and serve with rice or cold potato salad.
Making roux is totally optional. But, Highly recommended. I've seen that if you add roux it makes your shrimp gumbo thicker and tastes even better. Although it is a time-consuming process it's totally worth it.
You can add okra and cooked andouille sausage while making this recipe.
Storing: You can store your Crockpot gumbo covered in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
Freezing: You can freeze your Gumbo in a freezer-safe container once it cools down completely for up to 2-3 months. Keep it separate from the rice. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and reheat it in the oven or microwave before serving.
