- 1 teaspoon canola oil
- 8 ounces andouille sausage (see Ingredient Note) or low-fat kielbasa, cut into 1/4 inch-thick slices
- 1 bag (16 ounces) frozen bell pepper and onion mix
- 1 can (14 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 2 cups instant brown rice
- 8 ounces raw shrimp (26 to 30 per pound), peeled and deveined
Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add sausage and pepper-onion mix; cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables soften, 3 to 5 minutes.
Add broth to the pot and bring to a boil. Add rice, stir once, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add shrimp and stir to incorporate. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, until the shrimp are opaque and cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
Ingredient Note: Andouille sausage is a smoky, mildly spicy pork sausage commonly used in Cajun cooking. Look for it near other smoked sausages in large supermarkets or specialty food stores.
