Ingredients

  1. 1 tablespoon canola oil
  2. 6 ounces andouille sausage, halved lengthwise and sliced into 1/4-inch-thick pieces
  3. 1 medium onion, diced
  4. 1 green bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, diced
  5. 3 stalks celery, diced
  6. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  7. Coarse salt and ground pepper
  8. 2 teaspoons paprika
  9. 8 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  10. 1 cup long-grain white rice
  11. 1 pound medium shrimp, (about 30), peeled, deveined, and tails removed
  12. 1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions, for garnish

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage; cook, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides, 4 to 6 minutes. Add onion, bell pepper, celery, and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion begins to soften, 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in paprika; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. Add tomatoes, rice, and 3 cups water to skillet; cover, and simmer over medium heat until rice is cooked and has absorbed all water, about 15 minutes.
  3. Add shrimp to skillet, and cook, covered, until shrimp are opaque throughout, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat; season with salt and pepper, as desired. Serve hot, garnished with scallions.
