How to Make New Orleans style gumbo with scallops
You can't get better gumbo than in Louisiana, but if you, like us, can't make it out there anytime soon then the best way to soak up the savory and spicy flavor of Louisiana is to bring Louisiana home to you. Gumbo, a very thick and deep stew consisting of meat, vegetables, and more chili powder than most of us would deem safe, is a tradtional Lousiana dish.
New Orleans has its own variation on the spicy stew, a version of which is presented in this episode of The Minimalist by Mark Bittman. Using scallops, peppers, and a homemade roux, Bittman crafts a thick stew that'll definitely get your appetite going.
