I think I can, I think I can, I think I can….this has been my mantra this week. Between the kids activities, busy work schedules, getting ready to be out of town and preparing for the holidays, this week already feels like a blur. And I have a confession to make, when I am busy and feel overwhelmed I tend to neglect one of the things that matters most, having dinner with my family. But, thanks to Imagine® Organic Culinary Simmer Sauces, our sponsor for today’s Louisiana Shrimp and Sausage Creole recipe, I’m making an effort to not zip through the drive through and actually take the time to sit down and spend quality time with my family, something that has always been important to me.
This one pot meal is so simple and in just 3 easy steps and 10 minutes you’ll be sitting down to a family dinner. You may remember when I shared my Pan with a Plan recipe for Latin Veracruz Fish Tacos, my family liked it so much we decided to spice things up and try the Louisiana Creole Imagine® Organic Culinary Simmer Sauce. All you need are some frozen shrimp, sausage, olive oil and the Louisiana Creole sauce packet.
Start by heating oil in a skillet and cook your sausage for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Next add the shrimp to the pan and cook until the shrimp turn slightly pink.
Now pour on the Louisiana Creole simmer sauce into the pan. Let the meat simmer on medium heat for approximately 3-5 minutes, string occasionally.
Meanwhile prepare red beans and rice (we like to use the Mahatma brand) for a complimentary side dish. Now that is what I call a Pan with a plan, a delicious and easy weeknight dinner that brings everyone together!
At first I was worried this sauce would be too spicy for the kids, but it wasn’t at all. My husband likes his food super spicy so he added in some additional spices to his own.
