Best ever Gumbo

If I have a signature dish out of my kitchen, it would be gumbo. I had 2 pounds of frozen crawfish in the freezer that needed to be used up, so I decided to make a gumbo.
I have worked gumbo recipes for 20 years which filtered down to two; Chicken & kielbasa, and shrimp & okra. Looking at these two, I made a third (slight changes) for a third, crawfish & andouelli.
It turned out perfect. No grainy flour texture, too salty, or too heavy on anything. One of those times where everything lines up perfect.

Re: Best ever Gumbo

I know. How hard would it be to take a picture of a bowl of soup?

Re: Best ever Gumbo

I think we would all be willing to give you a break if you were to give up the recipes.

Post details, just don't try to desribe anything.

Sometimes the bowl throws your camera off...just get it while it's still in the pot
