Maybe I missed it while on your site but I didn’t see how much it serves.

Lululusciously says:

Why are people saying the dried shrimp ruined this? When I was a little girl my mom used those in her gumbo. It just gives it more seafood flavor they are actually not bad I use to sneak pieces out of the bag.

Evelyn Acevedo says:

how did you get your rice like that? 🙂

Tonja Hannon says:

Mike Ramos says:

dotee1999 says:

Try the dry shrimp I use it in the recipe came from my mom I also use prawns it is like a seasoning it elevates your gumbo trust me

Son of man! says:

I got every ingredient but dried shrimp. I should be alright tho right? I mean I can drive 20 miles to go get some. is it worth the drive?

Parker Lewis says:

I immediately cut it off when you said “you can get rid of the brown stuff in the pan”.  That’s the fond and its absolute gold.  You don’t get rid of that, you deglaze it or use the “sweat” from your vegetables to soak it up.

sharon bennett says:

Love your recipes always so easy and right to the point. Not too much talking. I am going to cook this next week for Sunday dinner.

David Smith says:

This recipe is pretty spot on all the traditional ingredients the dried shrimp just for flavor she also used fresh shrimp I have been cooking in restaurants for 37 years and have made gumbo hundreds of times I would say this recipe is better than most from the videos I have seen
