Wow now this is a Gumbo. I made one last week and mine didn't look this good haha. I have to learn how to cook the roux right.

It needs to be dark brown, but not burnt, have a nutty popcorn smell and have a texture similar to wet sand.

Definitely go low and slow. Not so much to avoid burning the roux, but to avoid burning yourself. I always get a small burn every time I make gumbo lol.
