Easy Shrimp & Sausage Gumbo

The important part is to cook it, stirring constantly, until it becomes dark, dark brown almost like mud, or chocolate. I did add extra chicken stock about 9 cups total since we like gumbo a little more soupy since its served over rice.

Just one tip that I found made it easier, cook the chicken first, remove, then the onion and celery, then put the chicken and remaining oil back in. If you find making roux difficult, you can find online a recipe for making it in the oven. Pin 1K. I would love to hear your experience. Good freezable recipe and would make again. Happy New Year!

Oh, one two more things!

I used parsley that I had personally dried and tossed the veggies in it beforehand and let them sit. It was a nice red color though. Other flavours are provided by phthalides, which celery shares with walnuts. In a skillet NOT cast-iron, which turns okra an ugly, ghastly black I melt some bacon fat and dump in the defrosted, partly cooked okra. It is delicious and family loves it.

Add all remaining ingredients except chicken, rice, and hot sauce and bring to boil. Pin 12K. Fellow Gumbo friends… follow your pallet with these amazing directions.

Followed the rest of the recipe except I did cook the shrimp in the gumbo and used store bought bone broth instead of making my own stock. I collect Cajun recipes and have a cook book called River Road from La. I added it to mine and it still turned out very good! Trip Planning Tools.

You could use store-bought chicken broth, but homemade is way better! Cover and let cook in own fat and juices for 30 minutes. It was really good.
