Here’s how to make your own at home:

Shrimp and Sausage Cajun Gumbo with Rice

Let’s start with what you’ll need:

  • 1/2 pound Key West pink shrimp
  • 1 package smoked sausage (U-shaped, cut on the diagonal)
  • cooking oil
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 3 cups white rice, cooked
  • broccoli florets, chopped fine with stalks removed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tsp cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce (optional)
  • red pepper flakes to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Directions:

  1. Cook rice according to the package instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the flour with 1/8-1/4 cup of cooking oil in a cooking pan. The goal here is to use enough oil to make a smooth (but not overly liquid) texture for the roux. Stir over high heat for about 3 minutes, then reduce heat and continue to stir until roux turns a reddish-brown.
  3. Add bell peppers, garlic, and broccoli to the pan and stir until cooked, about 8-11 minutes.
  4. Add cajun seasoning and stir to combine.
  5. Add chicken broth, stir and bring to a boil.
  6. After about a minute of boiling, reduce heat to low and add sausage, salt and pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  7. Reduce heat and cover; let it simmer for about 15 minutes.
  8. Remove the cover and bring to a boil again.
  9. Add the shrimp and cook on high for about 3 minutes.
  10. Add rice to bowls, then spoon the gumbo over the rice and enjoy!
