      Really great recipe. I cooked the roux a bit longer though (more like 30 minutes) and it kept the gumbo from being *gloopy*. But it tastes like the legitimate gumbo you would get in Louisiana. Oh, and also, I didn't have a lot of the ingredients so I just improvised, or left them out. Like, I didn't use file powder, nor parsley things like that didn't make or break the recipe.
