Hey, who really has the time for making an authentic Creole recipe? This recipe is straight from the Big D. It's an easy, spicy gumbo recipe using our Bloody Mary Mix as the base. Feel free to add some sausage and okra (ok, maybe not the okra).
Cook rice as per directions in a small pot. After cleaning and peeling shrimp, In a pan, cook your shrimp thoroughly. In a separate medium pot, pour in the bloody mary mix and heat to simmer. Once rice is cooked, add to pot with simmering bloody mary and stir until mixed. Add shrimp. Heat until the mix just barely starts to bubble and continue stirring. As the product thickens, turn off the heat, serve in bowls, place avocado slices in bowl and add dollop of sour cream to each bowl.
What?!? The grocery store just ran out of our Bloody Mary Mix, and you've got 10 friends coming over for brunch!?! Easy. Dust off the can of tomato juice from the back of your pantry, add the brine (that would be pickle juice) from any of our pickle flavors and the day is saved. You did remember the vodka, didn't you?
Serves 4 depending on how big your glass is!
1 leftover jar of McClure's brine (after finishing pickles you should have about 1/2 jar of brine left from any 32oz jar of McClure's)
14-16oz tomato juice
seasoning to taste (garlic powder, worchestshire sauce, etc.)
Using the leftover brine from a jar of McClure's 32oz Spicy, Garlic, or Sweet & Spicy pickles, fill the rest of the jar with tomato juice.

Lightly shake/stir the jar to mix the ingredients. Pour into an 8oz glass over 1oz of ice, 1oz vodka and add a McClure's pickle for your garnish.

2 all natural chicken breasts
(1) 1 gallon plastic bag
Using the remaining brine, garlic and dill from a jar of McClure's garlic dill spears, in a 1 gallon plastic bag place your clean and refrigerator thawed chicken breasts in the bag and pour the brine over them. Seal the bag and refrigerate for 6 hours. Fire up the grill, discard the liquid from the bag and place your chicken on the grill. Cook thoroughly and place on clean plate. The brine soaks into the chicken creating a very tender, flavorful and juicy meal.
