My first attempt at making a seafood gumbo was by and large successful. I didn’t follow a particular recipe but had many good suggestions from the wonderful commenters at Balloon juice, especially raven, lamh and NotMax. I made the gumbo with crawfish, mussels and shrimp. It was nutritious and delicious. Though my food photography needs some work, this gives you an idea of what the final product looked like. I served it with long grain white rice on the side and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
