Okay – I know it’s a mix, but it is YUM. I made the seafood version and added a pound of shrimp (raw/frozen) and canned crabmeat. The package includes the ground red pepper separately so you can adjust the heat to your liking. Half the packet worked for us.
I had never seen this mix before. I know Luzianne is (or was?) primarily a southern brand, but I did find it also on http://www.Amazon.com and http://www.cajungrocer.com just in case you can’t find it at your local store. Give it a try if you want gumbo but don’t have all day to make a roux and chop the holy trinity. It’s easy, quick and mighty tasty!!
