Leslie in Texas's Note:
I like this gumbo recipe because it doesn't have the traditional roux in it and is lighter, but still full of flavor.Gumbo is only as good as the stock it's made with, so take the time to make your own! I like to add two pounds of frozen crawfish tails, defrosted, to this and will also add sliced andouille sausage occasionally.Originally from the 1984 "Comander's Palace New Orleans Cookbook".
