Today’s Menu: Seafood Gumbo and Cornbread

 

 

I wanted Seafood and I wanted it in a hearty and healthy Gumbo. So I broke out the Luzianne Gumbo Dinner Kit. It contains a packet that contains the Rice, Vegetables, Seasoning, and Roux Mix. I cleared the freezer to make this grabbing anything Seafood! I added Shrimp, Crawfish, Scallops, and Langostino Lobster Tail Meat Pieces. The Crawfish Tail was leftover from a previous order I had purchased from The Cajun Grocer and I purchased the bag of Lobster from Jungle Jim’s market. The Seafood mixed in with the Roux, too good! This was the first time I added the Langostino Lobster Tail Meat Pieces. It fit in perfect the sweetness of the Lobster Meat and the heat of the Red Pepper and Hot Sauce was a perfect match! Plus a lot leftover to freeze and have later. I left the recipe and Gumbo description at the end of the post. For a side I baked a small skillet of Cornbread of to go along with the Gumbo and soak up some of that wonderful Roux. I used Martha White For dessert later a slice of fresh baked Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread.
