    Jellyqueen's Note:

    Okay....this is not your same old timey recipe, but it is good, plus it is quick and easy to make. Great for those weeknights when you want some good old comfort foods, but don't have the long cook time that is often involved in that type cooking.

      1) A gumbo ALWAYS starts with a dark roux. 2) Gumbo NEVER contains tomatoes. 3) NEVER use cooked shrimp in a hot recipe...they turn oout tough and chewy. This dish is a version of Creole Shrimp/Fish.

      No roux. Can't have a real gumbo without a roux of some sort. Also, photo by jellybear looks great! Photo by chabear01 is not a real gumbo - it looks like rice with a shrimp gravy rather than a soup with rice, which is what gumbo is supposed to be.

      Even though I knew I would pay for eating this with all the tomatoes in it, I made this exactly as your recipe states. Except that I didn't have the V8 juice and didn't feel like running to the market, so I used the large bottle of Spicy Bloody Mary Mix I have had sitting on the shelf, with no ill effects. I also added File at the end, only because I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the flavor it adds to Gumbo. Needless to say I overindulged with a large helping of seconds, as did everyone else here, and paid greatly for it, but will make this again and again. Thank You for a really super recipe.
