re: gumbo advice


Heres some advice. Went to Don's Seafood Hut in Laffy a couple of weeks ago. A bowl of seafood gumbo was $14.95. The cup as an app was $8.95. Either is highway robbery.

So, my advice is not to eat gumbo at Don's Seafood Hut.

It's smothered..not sliced up and chunky. It has flavor and makes the gumbo really thick. I do not like the sliced okra in a gumbo.

ETA: here is a pot of smothered okra. Add a quart of that to a gumbo.

I was at camp and started to make smothered okra and tomatoes with shrimp and sausage and someone changed menu to gumbo. So I started roux in another pot and dumped in the okra/rotel/sausage mixture. I was pretty darn good.

re: gumbo advice


Read my thread on oven roux and try that next time. I think you'll like your gumbo even more.
