How To Make Shrimp and Sausage Gumbo
Ready in under 30 minutes, this shrimp and sausage gumbo is a comfort dish that brims with the flavors of bell peppers and celery cooked in flavorful broth.
In a large saucepan, heat the vegetable oil until shimmering. Add the red bell pepper, chopped onion, celery, chopped garlic, and cayenne.
Season the vegetables with salt and pepper and cook them over moderately high heat for about 2 minutes until they are softened.
Add the sausage to the vegetables and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned.
Sprinkle the flour on top of the sausage and vegetables and stir until evenly coated.
Add the chicken stock and thyme sprigs and simmer over moderate heat for 10 minutes.
Add the shrimp and scallion to the saucepan, season lightly with salt, and simmer for about 2 minutes longer, stirring until the shrimp are opaque and cooked through.
Discard the thyme sprigs.
Stir the parsley into the gumbo and serve at once.
