  • 5.2oz prawns
  • 3.5oz crab meat
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2.8oz okra, chopped
  • 2 strips bacon, finely chopped

Place the bacon into a deep saucepan and fry on a low heat so that it releases its juices. Add the oil, onion, celery and pepper and fry for a further 5 minutes

Use a slotted spoon to remove the ingredients. Set aside.

Add butter and flour into the pan used to cook the bacon and vegetables stirring constantly into a paste until dark brown.

Slowly add in the chicken stock, still stirring constantly. Add the reserved bacon and vegetables, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaf, Dark Habanero, okra and sausage. Cover and simmer gently for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes add the shrimp and crab and cook for a further 5 minutes. Season with salt to taste and sprinkle with cilantro.
