Remove the top shells of the crabs and discard. Cut each crab into four
pieces. Melt the butter and saute the onions, okra, white onions and the
crabs. In a separate pot put the shrimp, oysters, tomatoes and tomato juice
with 1 1/2 quarts of fish stock and bring to a boil. Let it boil for a
minute, then add to the first pot. In a small skillet, cook the butter and
flour together until brown. Blend this brown roux with the file and some of
the gumbo liquid and add to the gumbo. Add the salt and pepper and cayenne
to taste. Simmer for about 1 1/2 hours. To serve, pour 1 1/2 cups of gumbo
over 1/2 cup of rice.
