Turn off heat and leave covered 3 minutes, drain and reserve liquid for gumbo ln a large pot with heavy bottom, heat oil; add flour. Make a roux (brown flour in oil) of deep golden brown; cook on a low heat, stirring constantly. Take pot off heat and quickly add onions and garlic; cook 4 minutes. Return to heat; add bell pepper, bay, leaf, broth with remaining water and dried shrimp. Let come to a boil; then add tomatoes and okra, stirring until it comes to a boil again. Reduce to simmer and cook, covered for 1 hour. Add cooked shrimp, green onion and parsley to gumbo just before serving. Serve in soup bowls with cooked rice. Note: For a different taste treat, shrimp gumbo file is made the same way, only omit okra, but putting 1/4 teaspoon gumbo fil? into each serving. (Do not cook fil?).
