  • 1 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro

Puff Pastry Dome

  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1 egg, whisked for wash


Cajun Spice Mix

  1. In a small mixing bowl, add all ingredients and mix well. Reserve. 


  1. Add bacon lardon to a large heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven and slowly raise heat to medium, rendering fat slowly. Add sliced chorizo sausage and cook until browned and bacon slightly crispy. 
  2. Add diced onion, celery, and green pepper and stir, coating in bacon and sausage drippings. Add minced or grated garlic and sauté until fragrant. Add butter, swirl to melt, and combine with the contents of the pot. Add prepared Cajun Spice Mix and stir. Create browned roux in the pot by sprinkling all-purpose flour over the contents, stirring frequently until flour mixes with fats at the bottom and browns. Gradually add beef stock to the pot, stirring to combine and create the rich Gumbo gravy. Add tomato purée, lime juice, chopped cilantro and stir to combine thoroughly. Add raw shrimp and cook until the flesh starts turning pink.
  3. Transfer hot Gumbo to a large baking pan and set aside to cool completely.
  4. Once Gumbo has cooled, transfer it to two oven-safe serving dishes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375 F/190C.

Puffy Pastry Dome

  1. Lay your chilled sheet of puff pastry on a floured surface and lightly dust the top with more flour. Using a sharp knife, lid, or bowl, slice pastry circles about ½-1 inch (2.5-3.75 cm) larger than your serving dishes. Using a pastry brush, apply egg wash to the outer edge of each circle and lay on top of each serving dish. Brush egg wash over the exterior of the puff pastry. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the puff pastry is crisp and golden brown. 


  1. Serve and enjoy!
