Lobster Corn Gumbo


  • 1 gallon lobster stock (chicken stock or fish broth may be substituted)
  • 2 cups corn, cut off the cob
  • 1 pound lobster meat, roughly chopped
  • 1 pound chouriço
  • 8 ounces unsalted butter
  • 2 cups yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cups celery, diced
  • 2 cups red bell peppers, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 8 ounces AP flour
  • 1 ½ tablespoons fresh chopped thyme
  • 1 pound fresh tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Tabasco to taste
  • Olive oil as needed
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large pot with a few tablespoons of olive oil begin to cook the diced chouriço sausage over a medium heat. Stir occasionally. Allow it to brown and become a bit crispy on the edges.
  2. Add the butter, allow to melt-
  3. Add the diced onions, celery, bell pepper and garlic. Over a low to medium heat cook slowly until the veggies become softened and the onions are translucent. Season the veggies with some salt and pepper.
  4. Add the flour to the veggie and butter mixture. Stir until fully mixed. The mixture will be very thick. Keep the heat turned low so as not to burn. Stir often.
  5. Cook gently for about 10 to 15 mins.
  6. Slowly begin adding the stock to the roux mixture. Stir with a whisk to incorporate.
  7. Once all the stock has been added, slowly bring up to a simmer. Stir often and watch to observe how much the soup thickens from the roux/flour mixture.
  8. Add bay leaf and chopped thyme.
  9. Add the corn.
  10. Allow the soup to simmer for about thirty mins – this will ensure that the flour has properly cooked..
  11. If the soup at all seems too thick, add more stock or water to adjust to the consistency.
  12. Adjust the seasoning of the soup to your liking with tabasco or your favorite hot sauce, salt, pepper.
  13. Add fresh chopped lobster meat, to your liking – any other seafood or meats may be added as well
