Home Cuisine American Simple Fish Gumbo

Simple Fish Gumbo

Gumbo is a Creole/ Cajun dish of stewed okra often with meat or seafood.  This is a very simple and easy version of that dish.  Cooking gumbo starts with making roux, which is oil and flour cooked into a paste to thicken the stew.

To make stews really delicious, the key is slow and long cooking/simmer but if you’re in a hurry, 30 minutes is good enough especially for smaller quantity like this recipe which is just enough for 4 people.  My 5-year old son likes this a LOT or maybe he was just too hungry..lol
