Instant Pot Louisiana Gumbo

Instant Pot Louisiana seafood, chicken, and sausage gumbo

The perfect comfort food dish that can be whipped up on weeknights or for that special holiday dinner.

Instant Pot Louisiana seafood, chicken, and sausage gumbo is an easy pressure cooker recipe with shrimpokra, rice, and New Orleans Cajun spicy Creole seasoning. The dish is prepared by creating a roux to thicken it.

The key to great gumbo lies in the herbs, spices, and the ROUX. A roux is a thickening agent. It helps keep a dish from being too watery and soupy. A roux combines oil and flour.

I typically use butter and flour when I create a roux. Herbs and spices are just as important. The right herbs will provide amazing flavor for the gumbo.
