Gumbo recipe from @epicurious + Super Bowl Sunday = a meal for Saints. I’m more foodie than football fan, so I decided to give New Orleans-inspired gumbo a whirl for the big game. I followed the recipe for “Shrimp and Andouille Gumbo” from Epicurious, but I used Aidells Chicken Apple Sausage instead of andouille (Safeway was out of the Cajun stuff).
My first roux was a little on the light side, so I’d recommend waiting for it to turn a little darker in color. Plus the okra seemed slightly overpowering, but I didn’t measure precisely. Also, this recipe has a kick! (Dial down the cayenne if you’re sensitive.)
Final score: 3 to 1
