Gumbo was always something that I never made. I never ate it, didn't like it and didn't want to take the time to make it. Until I learned the correct way to do it. This is our family's favorite gumbo...seafood and andouille sausage. But it has to be a good quality andouille. If you can't get an andouille, then substitute a good smoked sausage or kielbasa.
