Recipe online




The online recipe calls for a roux to add to the gumbo. I decided to not make that because I didn't want my gumbo too thick. I just added the flour mix. You do whatever fits your fancy. You can also serve this with rice.

It was good and hearty. I have a lot of this left. I packaged up some of the broth. It makes an excellent sauce when making stewed chicken. I froze the rest. I'll probably have it again on Sunday. I'll add the roux then and have it with rice.




*Edit

I mixed up the shrimp and okra sizes. It is ONE cup of shrimp and TWO cups of okra.

This sounds delicious - question, though - how do you make a roux? You can email me at ctmom96@gmail.com if you don't want to post it here. Thanks!
