    I think this recipe deserves 3 stars. It definitely tastes great for a "speedy" meal. Obviously compared to gumbo that has been simmering for hours is a whole other story. Anywho, great for a quick meal. Thanks for sharing.

    ok taste. Expensive to make with 4 condensed gumbo soups, shrimp, and crab.

    I loved this recipe. I found that if you use the frozen okra and put them in without thawing, than they will not get gummy. Will definitely be making this again.

    Kind of bland & i didn't like the sticky consistency of it. Won't make it again.
