Cajun Seafood Gumbo

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by iewe7726

This is a fairly simple gumbo recipe, and could be spiced up to individual tastes with spicier sausage, or the additional cayenne.

Not a true Cajun recipe at all! I am a Cajun from Louisiana and this is not authentic. We do NOT put clam chowder, nor do we put tomato anything in our gumbos.
