Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo

I had a craving for gumbo and decided to make it the other night in a hurry. I can't believe I'm going to admit to this, but a friend of mine gave me 4 bags of Loisiana Purchase Gumbo Mix/Roux. Well like I said I was in a hurry on a week night and wanted gumbo, so I used it. It was pretty good in a pinch, but not close to homemade. I added bell pepper, onion, okra, smoked sausage, tomatoes, garlic and shrimp. Simmered everything but the shrimp for 30 minutes, turned off the heat and added the shrimp. Served over white rice. Pretty good weeknight meal!!

Looks good Larry. Ya know there is a restaurant here in town which makes about the best Gumbo I ever ate and they dont even use a Roux. Wonder how stuff like that happens?

They may use file' powder right before serving to thicken.

They use File' Gumbo but they dont save it for last. They put it in early along with a tomater sauce base. It also has a bunch of other spices in there. It aint just ground sassafras leaves which you can tell by smelling and reading the ingredient list. It comes from the Farmer Brothers Coffee Company. Know one of the ingredients is tea.
