- Add cajun seasoning, tabasco sauce, and cayenne along with chicken broth and stewed tomatoes and put it on simmer before and then lower the heat. Continue to cover and simmer for another 20 minutes.
- Next add the shrimp and to the gumbo, stir and let it simmer for an additional 15 minutes or until the shrimp and the veggies are done.
- Taste and season with salt and pepper as you desire. Next add the gumbo filé and stir. Remove the bay leaves before you serve.
Serve it warm with white rice or quinoa with sliced scallions as topping.
- You don’t need to use all the colours for the bell peppers.
- 1 diced tomatoes can be used in place of the stewed tomatoes.
