I plan on making seafood gumbo this weekend and was wondering what kind of rice to use for the gumbo. I'm not a rice expert, but would vietnamese steamed rice work? Or does it have to be some specific type of rice.
I use long grain Jasmine rice for most of the southern dishes I make. Gumbo is no exception. I have had no complaints.
I think most gumbos would use regular rice. Paul Prudhomme recommends converted rice, but I don't think it's essential. If by Vietnamese rice you mean jasmine rice, the flavors might compete too much.
