What's Cooking: Easy Shrimp and Sausage Something
Here's an easy recipe I whipped up one morning, made with shrimp and Cervelat sausage. You can actually substitute with any type of mild flavored sausage or even hot dogs. I don't really know what to call it, I was thinking along the lines of Cajun cooking but the spices and sausage I used didn't fit. So whatever, if you can think of a more exciting name, I'm open to suggestions. The main thing is, it's fast, easy and tastes absolutely awesome!
1/4 kilo shrimp
1 large sausage sliced
1 medium red onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic,chopped
1/2 tsp cumin (more or less)
1/4 tsp dried oregano leaves
3 tbsp water (more or less)
oil for sauteing
salt and pepper to taste
1. Clean the shrimp, make sure it is shelled and deveined. You can cheat like me and buy it all spiffed up by your fish monger. Frozen can also be good but I'm not such a big fan of frozen shrimp.
2. In a shallow pan, heat some oil and sauté the onions, once it turns pink add the garlic, sausage, shrimp, and other spices. Sauté for like 3 minutes until the shrimp turns pink. Add salt and pepper to taste, and a little water to get all the spices to come together and form a thick sauce.
3. Simmer for a minute or so and serve hot with rice.
**You can make it a little more spicy by adding cayenne pepper, best served with an ice cold beer!
