This is one of the least complicated gumbo recipes I've tried, yet it comes from Cajun Cuisine cookbook, so it's still all about Cajun! I skip the oysters for personal preference!

  4. Add remaining shrimp, crab, (oysters), salt, peppers and simmer for 10 minutes or until warm.
  5. Serve over cooked rice. (May add file powder before serving.).
