• 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 1 green capsicum, deseeded and chopped
  • 1 chorizo or spicy sausage, sliced
  • ½ tsp dried thyme

  • 250 g raw prawn meat
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  1. Heat a dash of oil in a large saucepan and add the onion, celery and green capsicum. Cook over a moderate heat, stirring frequently until the vegetables are soft but not browned.
  2. Add chorizo, thyme, bay leaf and continue cooking for a further 2 minutes.
  3. Add Wattie’s Condensed Tomato Soup, Wattie’s Mexican Style Tomatoes and vegetable stock. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer gently for 20 minutes.

Top Tips

  • There are different types of chorizo, for a mild spicy heat use a milder sausage. For this recipe we used a very spicy chorizo which gives a smoky spicy hot note to the gumbo.
  • Add your favourite seafood to this recipe - mussels, calamari, scollops - or replace the fish with diced chicken breast meat. This should be added with the chorizo to ensure the chicken cooks through.
  • If gluten-free be sure to serve with a gluten-free bread.

Alan Murray's Review | Rating

This is really tasty and I often stop just before adding the Seafood and freeze the sauce Then it is just a simple defrost and heating the sauce before adding fresh Seafood. To reduce cost I use cheaper Tomatoes and add spice to make it Mexican. I have also found the quality of the Chorizo can influence the end dish. Brilliant dish which I serve over a small mound of potato mash with a few green veggies on the side. Yum!
