Speedy Seafood Gumbo Recipe

Speedy Seafood Gumbo Recipe

I needed a quick meal one blustery night when my husband was coming home late with the kids. So I threw together this tasty gumbo with ingredients I had on hand, and my family really liked it. Preparing it with instant rice gives us more family time together. —Lori Costo, The Woodlands, Texas
