  • 4 tsp. Cajun or Creole seasoning, divided
  • 2 tsp. light brown sugar
  • 1 lb. colossal shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 Andouille sausages, sliced into rounds
  • 3 garlic cloves, grated or finely chopped
  • ½ tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1-½ cups white rice
  • 3-½ cups chicken stock
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 container MiMi® Gourmet Tomatoes, halved
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced

  • In a small bowl, combine the 2 tsp. of the Cajun (or Creole) seasoning and brown sugar. Sprinkle the mixture over the shrimp on all sides.
  • Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and cook for about 2-3 minutes per side, until just cooked through. Transfer the cooked shrimp to a plate and set aside.
  • Add the sausages to the skillet and brown on both sides, about 2-3 minutes. Transfer the cooked sausage to the plate with the shrimp and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Set aside.
  • Add the remaining 1 Tbsp. olive oil to the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add the rice, in addition to the remaining 2 tsp. Cajun (or Creole) seasoning, and chicken stock.
  • Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for about 20-23 minutes, or until rice is cooked and the stock has been absorbed.
  • Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes, then fluff with a fork. Add in the MiMi® Gourmet Tomatoes and toss to combine.
  • Transfer rice to a serving platter. Top with reserved shrimp and andouille sausage. Garnish with scallions and parsley and serve.
