Dirty Rice with Shrimp and Andouille

Submitted by: LISAINMS

Introduction

My version of Dirty Rice because I don't like livers and gizzards. This is really spicy so if you are sensitive, leave out the cayenne. My version of Dirty Rice because I don't like livers and gizzards. This is really spicy so if you are sensitive, leave out the cayenne.
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1/2 cup brown rice
    1-1/2 cups water
    1 bay leaf
    1/8 tsp thyme leaves
    1/8 tsp paprika
    2 dashes cayenne pepper
    1 tsp olive oil
    1/4 cup diced onion
    1/4 cup diced green bell pepper
    1/4 cup diced celery
    1 Tbsp minced garlic
    3 oz Andouille Sausage, large diced
    4 oz raw large shrimp, cut bite size
    1 spring onion (scallion), green top sliced

Tips

I used Manda brand Andouille because it is lower fat than the other brands.


Directions

1. In a sauce pan, simmer water and add rice. Reduce to low heat. Add bay leaf, thyme, paprika and cayenne. Stir. Cover and allow to cook at very low heat for 45 min.

2. With 10 minutes remaining on rice cooking time, add oil to a large, non-stick skillet. Using medium heat, saute onion, pepper and celery until soft, stiring as needed to prevent overcooking. Add garlic and sausage. Cook a few minutes then add shrimp. Stir and flip to cook shrimp through.

3. Fluff rice with a fork. Remove and discard bay leaf.

4. Add rice to sausage-shrimp mix and stir to combine. Top each serving with a sprinkling of green onion.

  • Andouille? You really get these in the US? I've only seen in France! - 2/21/12

    I didn't think about that! Andouille is a sausage from Louisiana (I live in Mississippi- next door), which is very influenced by french creole cooking so that makes sense that you would find it in France as well. It's delicious!
