I haven't had homemade gumbo in years, and have never actually made it myself. Since this recipe looked the closest to what I was looking for, I decided to give it a whirl... YUM! My husband raved over it (only he added waaaay more red pepper, likes his gumbo HOT). The only changes I made were using slightly less okra, used polish sausage (no andouille here) and I added shrimp per husband's request. The only thing I will change for next time, is maybe using just one can of tomatoes. Also, if anyone is having a hard time finding file powder, sometimes your local grocery store will have a separate display of cajun/seafood seasonings--Not necessarily by the spice section. I found the Zatarain's brand and it worked great.
