Like a traditional gumbo, this recipe is cooked without ordinary rice. Start your gumbo with Zatarain’s Gumbo Base, and prepare some Long Grain Parboiled Rice to create a more complete creole meal.
Bring water, Gumbo Base and oil to boil in large saucepot on medium heat, stirring to dissolve any lumps. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally
Stir in shrimp and sausage; cover. Simmer additional 30 minutes
Serve over rice and sprinkle with Gumbo Filé, if desired
