Shrimp’s popularity makes it easy to find in almost every grocery store. If you are able to source fresh shrimp from your fishmonger then use those, but frozen shrimp will work just as well. If using fresh shrimp, buy them the day you plan to cook them. Before cooking store fresh shrimp in a large bowl filled with crushed ice to preserve their freshness.

    I learned to love gumbo while studying in Louisiana. This recipe is quick and gives decent results. I had made my own roux (flour +oil) beforehand and I used chicken stock; otherwise, I followed the recipe pretty closely.

    Is the smoked sausage supposed to be raw or just the normal packaged precooked kind?
