Recipe Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup expeller pressed canola oil
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 diced yellow onion
  • 2 red bell peppers diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 8 oz. Andouille style sausage sliced into rounds
  • 5 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tbsp. Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tbsp. cayenne pepper optional for extra heat
  • 4 cups Pacific Foods Free-Range Low-Sodium Chicken Broth
  • 1 cup Organic Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 lbs. Uncooked Shrimp
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. gumbo file powder
  • 1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced
  • Add the oil to a large, heavy-bottomed pot and bring it up to medium heat. Add flour and whisk constantly to avoid burning. Cook, stirring constantly until the mixture becomes a caramel color, about 10-12 minutes.
  • Add onion, garlic, sausage, peppers and celery to the pot. Cook until tender, about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally to avoid sticking.
  • Add cayenne pepper, Cajun seasoning, Organic Low Sodium Chicken Broth and Organic Diced Tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes.
  • Add gumbo filé and shrimp, and continue to simmer for 10-15 minutes until shrimp is cooked and gumbo thickens.
  • Serve over rice topped with green onions.
