Seafood Gumbo – New Orleans Style
Leo Neil of Crosby, Texas generously shared this Gumbo recipe with me.  Leo says, “I’m very passionate about New Orleans traditional cooking and it’s a shame to what culinary level the mighty gumbo has sunk.  I always try gumbo in restaurants and I’ve been to some of the best, but they NEVER get it right.”
