Really nice seafood stew - not sure I would call it gumbo. The bacon gives it a great flavor. It took longer to prepare than I expected - between cutting everything up, crisping the bacon and sauteing the veggies, but I would definitely make it again. Served with crusty bread.

This recipe was great and easy. The only changes we made were: we substituted green onions for the regular onion, and we eliminated the bacon and added Andouille sausage in its place. We served over rice and added a hot pepper sauce as a condiment to spice it up a bit.

I followed recipe as directed. It was easy to make. More of a stew than a gumbo. My 4 year old said it was ok, and my husband (who loves all kind of seafood) also said it was just ok. I didn't care for it because the crab meat flavor over powered all the other flavors. I would not make again. I served it with rice and a green salad.
