Express Shrimp

Express Shrimp
& Sausage Jambalaya

Makes 4 servings, 1-1/2 cups each

 

You don't have to sacrifice the traditional smoky punch of this Cajun favorite just because you're short on time. All you need is some purchased sausage and quick-cooking brown rice to create a rich, satisfying dinner on any weeknight. Have some sliced berries for dessert to cool off your palate!

1 teaspoon canola oil
8 ounces andouille sausage (see Note)
          or low-fat kielbasa, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1 16-ounce bag frozen bell pepper and onion mix
1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 cups instant brown rice
8 ounces raw shrimp (26-30 per pound), peeled and deveined

1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add sausage and pepper-onion mix; cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables soften, 3 to 5 minutes.

2. Add broth to the pot and bring to a boil. Add rice, stir once, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add shrimp and stir to incorporate. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, until the shrimp are opaque and cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
