      I can't help but agree with your father. I was born in Louisiana in 1940 and have enjoyed Shrimp Gumbo for many years. When you add sausage to it the shrimp flavor is overpowered. A friend of mine in La Rose said to me if it's not shrimp, it's not gumbo. His wife made wonderful gumbo and never put a hint of sausage near it. This is truly one of the original recipes.

      It was alright, but without the addition of onion, garlic, celery, and some parsley at the end along with crab meat or crabs, it's not really a true gumbo. Try it and see for yourself. A true Louisiana girl who learned from her Mother!

      I have lived in Louisiana all of my life as have some of the above reviewers. However, I also personally know quite a few "cajuns" who do not use a roux when they make a gumbo that has okra. In fact, I worked with a lady that was born a Landry and married a Desormeaux (true cajun people) and when I asked her where was the roux in her okra gumbo she looked at me like I had lost my mind and said "You don't put roux in an okra gumbo." I have not tried the above recipe simply because it is not to my personal liking. I prefer a gumbo with onions, celery, bell pepper, garlic and, yes, roux. Gumbo is like any other dish. A lot of it is simply personal preference. But to say it's not a gumbo, well, just don't say that around too many cajuns here in the Lafayette area.

      I grew up in a Cajun family and I currently live in Louisiana. I do agree that seafood gumbo should not have sausage but thats besides the point--this is not a true gumbo recipe. It doesnt even contain roux!

      This is very easy and my family loves it!!!. It is the only way I can get my kids to eat okra and not even care. It is great to see my fussy eaters all agree on the same thing!!!
