Shrimp and Sausage Gumbo

October 9, 2011

Gumbo I have never made gumbo before. I decided to give it a try- why not? All I need is a good recipe… so I decided to do some research and found a few recipes which I combined and tweaked and came up with my version of gumbo.

As an Indian- I am very familiar with okra- which is a key ingredient in gumbo. I decided to use fresh okra instead of frozen. I prefer the fresh variety especially if I can find it. I usually buy it at the Indian grocery stores. The frozen variety is perfectly acceptable in case one can’t find the fresh.

This dish does have quite a few ingredients- so may be this is more suitable for the weekend. I served it with rice and a nice white wine. The best part of the dish is that it is a one pot meal- I love cooking them.

Try this recipe and let me know what you think…
