Simmer the gumbo over low heat for 45mins; mix in 2 teaspoons of file gumbo powder at the 45-minute mark.

 

Meanwhile, melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet, and cook the okra over medium heat for 15 minutes; transfer cooked okra into the gumbo mixture. Mix in crablegs, shrimp, scallops, and the juice of 2 lemons, simmer until flavors have blended (30-45 more minutes).  Serve of rice.  Enjoy!
