Shrimp Gumbo

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by ellie_

Shrimp Gumbo is a fast microwave soup that is quick and easy to prepare. We love it with a loaf of sourdough french bread. I made a few changes to the original recipe from Barbara Kafka's Microwave Gourmet Heathstyle Cookbook.

Ellie, I'm sorry to take so long in making this wonderful dish. We had it last week and it was absolutely wonderful. I had never tried to make a gumbo before and I will be making this often. Thanks for such a good recipe.
