  • 1 pound fresh or frozen peeled, deveined small shrimp

  • ½ 17.3 ounce package frozen puff pastry sheets (1 sheet), thawed

  • ½ teaspoon Cajun seasoning

  • 1 cup chopped green sweet pepper (1 large)

  • 1 cup chopped onion (1 large)

  • ½ cup sliced celery (1 stalk)

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 14 - 16 ounce cooked smoked sausage links,* halved lengthwise and sliced

  • 1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes, drained

  • 1 10.75 ounce can condensed cream of chicken soup

  • 1 9 ounce package frozen cut okra, thawed

  • 2 tablespoon tomato paste

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Rinse shrimp and pat dry with paper towels; set aside. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lay pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Cut pastry sheet into 2- to 2-1/2-inch squares. Place on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle top of pastry evenly with Cajun seasoning. Bake for 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a very large skillet, cook sweet pepper, onion, celery, and garlic in hot oil over medium heat about 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in sausage, tomatoes, soup, okra, tomato paste, salt, and cayenne pepper; heat until bubbly. Add shrimp and return to boiling. Transfer shrimp mixture to a 3-quart rectangular baking dish.

  3. Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Place puff pastry squares on top of the gumbo mixture. Bake about 10 minutes more or until golden brown and edges are bubbly.


Use andouille sausage for spicier gumbo or kielbasa for more mild gumbo.
