SEAFOOD GUMBO

Gumbo is one of those recipes that’s easy to double or triple without much extra work – you’ll just need bigger pots and pans. That makes it a great recipe for a potluck dinner or another social event where you have to cook for a crowd. It’s also a perfect candidate for a big batch recipe that you can freeze in portion-sized containers for quick reheating later on a busy night: easy, economical, and most importantly, delicious!
