Savory Shrimp and Sausage Gumbo

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Krystal-Belle

I found this recipe on the website back when I was pregnant with my first baby and I decided to give it a try. With a few of my own additions it instantly became a favorite comfort food of mine and it was a big hit with my inlaws, who now have it at least once a month!

First off, trust that the 14 cans of diced tomatoes is a typo. I used only one and it worked out fine. A very tasty quick variety dish, but feel a true cajun taste can only be acquired by much longer cooking time. I added a dash of creole seasoning, along with some chopped green peppers and spring onions that I had. It was good and we will use it again. Thanks for posting it.
