Seafood Gumbo Soup

Don’t let the ingredients list scare, making gumbo is simple and straight food and is no more complicated than making stew. After you get past the stirring (making the roux) everything else is a breeze. This gumbo is loaded with hearty pieces of chicken thighs, smoked sausage, crab legs and shrimp. The key to a great gumbo is the roux- a roux is basically equal parts of oil and flour, stirred together to eliminate the floury taste. With gumbo the stirring is prolonged to achieve a chocolate color to intensify the flavor the stew.
