READY IN: 45mins


  • 1 12
    tablespoons salted butter
  • 1
    (24 ounce) bag Simply Potatoes Mashed Sweet Potatoes
  • 1
    lb tail-on medium raw shrimp
  • 1
    (12 ounce) package andouille sausages
  • 2
    medium green tomatoes or 2 medium tomatillos, if green tomatoes are not available


  • Heat non-stick sautee pan over medium heat. Cut andouille sausage on the bias. When the pan is hot, add sausage and cook until edges are golden brown (about 4-5 minutes). Set aside.
  • Slice green tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices. In the same pan, turn up the heat to medium-high and heat 1/2 tablespoon of butter making sure to scrape all the brown bits left by the andouille sausage. When butter is foaming, add tomato slices and sautee 2 minutes per side. Tomatoes should have nice browning on both sides. Set aside.
  • Open Simply Potatoes Mashed Sweet Potatoes and divide potatoes into 6 round balls (more or less if you are doing small appetizers or larger entree with this recipe). Using your hands, form flat patties with sweet potatoes (each should be about 1/2 inch thick). Heat 1/2 tablespoon butter in a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add sweet potato cakes. Cook approximately 4-5 minutes per side flipping once.
  • Heat last 1/2 tablespoon of butter in sautee pan over medium heat and cook shrimp until shrimp turns pink (about 2-3 minutes) flipping shrimp to cook both sides.
  • Plate the dish by placing one sweet potato cake on plate, top with one slice sauteed green tomato, followed by andouille sausage slices, and finish with a few sauteed shrimp. Serve immediately.
