Notes about this recipe

    This was my first time making gumbo, so I'm no expert, but I was really happy with this recipe. I got to use my homemade fish stock for it so I had high expectations. I did make a few changes--I crumbled in one link of chorizo during the sautéeing stage (obviously not authentic, but I didn't have andouille), and I used 3/4lb of okra rather than the full pound. I also added a diced thai chile for some extra heat. I probably let the soup simmer a bit longer than was called for before I added the shrimp, because I really wanted the flavors to meld. The final result was lovely and thick, with a nice depth of flavor. I was worried it wouldn't be spicy enough for us, but it was actually verging on too spicy--I must have gotten an especially hot thai chile. With cornbread, this made a really nice dinner.
