  • 3 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning

  1. Marinade shrimp with salt, pepper and wine.
  2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and saute until browned, about 4 minutes. Add onion, pepper and celery and cook 3-4 minutes, until vegetables are softened. Add garlic and saute another minutes. Add rice, Cajun seasoning, chicken broth, and tomatoes; mix well. Add shrimp and bury in rice. Cover and cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, until shrimp is just cooked through. Remove cover; continue cooking for a few minutes, stirring constantly, until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat; serve with chopped scallions.
