This was terrific. Added 3Tbs Flour and 4 TBs oil to make roux. Served with File Powder at the table. To the person that said it wasn't flavorful, You Have to taste food when you cook it. It might need salt, or Pepper, or more creole seasoning or hot sauce or whatever. Make it taste the way you want it.
This was a hit at our house. First time using okra in soup and enjoyed it. I used fresh wild caught shrimp and cod and made nice combination. I had fresh creole seasoning and adjusted down a bit because not a fan of too spicy - wanted to taste the flavors of fish and okra. Will be a household favorite. Even better the next day - careful not to overcook shrimp
I loved this recipe. I've made it 3 times already. I usually add extra okra and use chicken broth. I only had frozen peeled shrimp and orange roughy in my freezer so I used those, but the orange roughy adds a nice creaminess. If you find this lacking in flavor, it probably has to do with the age or combo of your creole spices. Delicious and easy enough for a weeknight.
Not very flavorful. Seemed like it needed something more to make it more like a gumbo, sausage or chicken, and maybe some wine to give it flavor. Definitely would not make it again.
