Recipes–Creole Gumbo With Sweet Sausage And Shrimp


The combination of shrimp and sausage simmered in tomato sauce with lots of Bay and Cajun spices, sweet corn cannot be beat.  It is not a classic gumbo which usually has okra and often oysters, but this recipe is delicious and very simple to make.

* 2 Tbsp. Bay Spice (approximately)
* 1 Tbsp. Cajun spice
* 2 tsp. fish sauce
* 2 tsp. sugar
* 4-5 lg. cloves garlic, chopped
* 3-4 Tbsp. olive oil
