Taste Lafayette Louisiana Seafood Gumbo
Prep time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: Roux – 30 minutes, Gumbo – 1 hour and 10 minutes
Tip: I put okra in my shrimp gumbo but not in my seafood gumbo. Stock is important in all gumbo recipes, but especially seafood. I make my own with fish heads and shrimp shells, but in a pinch, I will use dried shrimp. Bags of dried shrimp are sold just about everywhere in south Louisiana and Cajuns love to snack on them as well as use them in cooking. They have a very intense flavor that adds richness to gumbo and other seafood dishes.
