Delicious and easy! Also very adaptable. I used duck and a merengue sausage with basil...and Paul Prudohmme salt free seasonings (adjust tou your liking). Also used crawfish, as that was what I had rather than shrimp! Very nice! Family loved it!

I found this recipe in my files and am glad to see it posted here. I made it for Fat Tuesday and it was a hit. I found it to be a little confusing on whether or not to cook the shrimp ahead of time ~ the ingredient list says cooked shrimp and the recipe directions say to cook until shrimp turn pink. I cooked mine ahead and threw them in at the last moment and cooked just until they warmed up and it worked great. I also used andouille sausage. This is a very easy recipe to make and very flavorful. Thanks for posting!

Absolutely brilliant!!! I used creole seasoning instead of "Cajun seasoning" and tweeked it to my taste, but it was great! Highly recommend making this one if you like sausage and shrimp!
