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