"Simple and beautiful recipe; my son helps me make the gumbo (he likes to stir). My husband approved this recipe and he is from Gretna, Louisiana. We changed it a little by using only about one pound of shrimp and adding about one chicken breast.
I have a wonderful photo and will upload it when my husband returns my portable drive."

* In Saudi Arabia, I use spicy sausage. I remove the casings and lightly brown it like ground beef first. ** You can substitute chicken for the shrimp. Use 1 whole boneless, skinless chicken breast or 1/2 breast and 1 leg/thigh joint, cooked and cut into bite sized pieces. For roux, in a large heavy saucepan or Dutch oven combine flour and oil till smooth. Cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium. Cook and stir about 15 minutes more or till roux is the color of a penny. Stir in onion, celery, green pepper, garlic, black and red pepper. Cook over medium heat for 3-5 minutes or till vegetables are just crisp-tender, stirring often. Gradually stir in hot chicken broth, sausage, okra and bay leaves. If using chicken, add now. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover; simmer 20-30 minutes, or until chicken is tender--if using shrimp, add during last 5 minutes of cooking. NOTES : Every time I try to make a gumbo without okra, I catch hell. So here is the recipe that always seems to be a hit! Modified from the traditional Better Homes & Gardens recipe.

dakotarussell 1 year agoThis came out decent, although I think I'd prefer the chicken version. The flavors were better blended after sitting overnight in the fridge. I'd say 20-30 minutes is the bare minimum for simmering, I think leaving it for closer to an hour would create better results.
