Shrimp and Catfish Gumbo Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 3)
Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
This recipe was okay. I was looking for a gumbo recipe that did not use butter as a roux and something special for New Years. I was a little confused with the dry crab boil. The store had many varieties of crab boils including the liquid. I ended up buying the kind in the cheese clothe (big mistake) The little seeds were a bit annoying. I think I was suppose to buy a powder kind. I wish that had been specified in the recipe. I also added smoked turkey sausage which gave it a good taste. I also added a little cornstarch to thicken it just a bit. My husband and the kids ate it. So.... I think they liked it. My husband rated it a five because I made it. Would I make it again? Not unless they ask for it.

Good recipe. Allows for a lot of experimenting. I think next time I use it I'll not use fish but thats a personal preference. Rather soupy if you are looking for a thick gumbo. I thought it was quite good for a thick spicy soup.
