Best Gumbo in New Orleans

Shrimp, Chicken and Andouille Sausage Gumbo thumb Shrimp, Chicken and Andouille Sausage Gumbo

The Pelican Club
According to Pelican Club Owner/Chef Richard Hughes, great gumbo starts with a deeply flavored stock. This award-winning French Quarter restaurant combines crab stock (made with a case of crabs) with their own very rich chicken stock. They thicken their gumbo with a nut brown roux and serve with plenty of shrimp, chicken, andouille, and, of course, rice. The shrimp and rice (Chef prefers jasmine rice) are added on top just before serving. Chef says the key is in the seasoning (and in not overcooking the shrimp). It’s a lovely way to begin a meal.
