This traditional New Orleans-style gumbo begins with a sauteed mix of butter and flour called a roux. Serve over white rice.
We live in Mobile,Al. and this is the standard gumbo recipe around here-GREAT- but,PERSONALLY, I don't use the oysters and not as much okra-just my preference. - 19 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
It will have to be a really cold day before I whisk flour and clarified butter for 45 minutes. Great gumbo--even leaving out the seafood. - 15 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Wonderful, but I leave out the oysters! Been using this recipe for 40 years, I live on Mobile Bay in AL! - 13 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
