    I never really follow a recipe exactly because I don’t follow directions properly - but I tried with this one cause it was pretty exact in what it was doing. I never could get it a chocolate brown roux it was more of a rusty color. However it turned out really well and my family loved it! Never got a picture of the finished product just as everything was stewing before the gumbo file. We have made this now 3 times and a 4th time tonight.

    Awesome!!, (we used a lemon pepper rotisserie chicken and deboned it). We added the chicken in with the shrimps,lobster tails, crab legs and crab meat at the end for about 5-10 minutes. This a most definitely must cook again No Doubt. the lobster tails truly kicked it up a notch.

    This Gumbo is addictive. I used chicken breast (thighs would’ve been better) and didn’t have any crab. Also, I didn’t make a “proper” roux. Instead, after browning the chicken, I dumped in the trinity and cooked until translucent, added the butter, then coated everything with flour and cooked/stirred for a minute or so before adding the chicken stock. Stir and scrape the bottom of the pan vigorously. Keep adding liquid until it reaches the right consistency. Dump everything else in and simmer for at least a 1/2 hour.

    Great flavor . Instead of white rice I used Yellow rice (Zatarains) I have always used boxed Gumbo, after making this recipe I wont be using box anymore

    I was forced to deviate a little due to availability of ingredients and my own inexperience, and it still turned out great!
