Seafood gumbo is one of the comfort foods of the south! Many people will tell you, there is no recipe for gumbo, it is simply a process. A great gumbo will always start with a dark roux, which uses butter and flour, cooked slow and low until it turns a caramel color. You would add aromatic vegetables like onion, celery, and bell peppers. Follow these up with seasonings and stock. The seafood will be added during the final stretch of the cooking process as most seafood is fairly quick cooking.
