Shrimp and Okra Gumbo with Tasso

It's true that roux is the base for gumbo. I was raised in New orleans and was taught by my mom and sisteron how to cook gumbo. There are two types of gumbo, as bluejet says, "Okra and File", File gumbo doesnt have okra and tomatoes but it does have chicken, shrimp, ham, oysters, crab, smoke sausage,bay leaf, trinity (onions, bell peppers and celery), andouille sausage, cayenee pepper, salt, water and roux (flour and oil).
