I am from the Gulf Coast (Pensacola) and love gumbo, but have never made it. I did the research to find a recipe with a high rating and decided on this one to be my first. This recipe was wonderful!!!!! I did make a few substitutions and additions, though. Rather than 3 QTs water and beef bullion cubes I used 1 quart each of seafood and vegetable stock and 2 quarts of water. I needed more than the 3 quarts suggested because I added 3 diced chicken breasts (pan seared and then diced), 1 pound of lump crab meat, 1 pound of shrimp (peeled and deveined) and I doubled the sausage. My husband loves very hearty, meaty gumbo - so he absolutely LOVED this!! Thank you so much! I can't wait to make it again! :)
