Today’s Menu: Shrimp, Scallop, Crawfish Gumbo
Gumbo for dinner tonight! If you want a quick but yet delicious and thick Gumbo you’ll have to try Luzianne Gumbo Dinner Kit. It contains a packet that contains the Rice, Vegetables, Seasoning, and Roux Mix. I added Shrimp, Crawfish, Scallops, Potatoes, and Mini Carrots. It was the first time I used Crawfish. I purchased it when I ordered the Gator Meat from the Cajun Grocer on-line the other day. The Crawfish Tail fit right in with the Shrimp and Scallops. It came out delicious! The Seafood and the Roux too good! Plus a lot leftover to freeze and have later. I left the recipe and Gumbo description at the end of the post. We had a side of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread to go along with the Gumbo and soak up some of that wonderful Roux. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Ingredients

1 Pound of Shrimp, Crawfish, and Sea Scallops

2 Small Russet Potatoes (Diced)

10 or more Mini Carrots

6 Cups of Water

2 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Pepper, Sea Salt for seasoning

1 Box of Luzianne Gumbo Dinner Kit

*Dice the Russet Potatoes and microwave for 4 minutes to soften
