1 ½ teaspoonCajun seasoning,store-bought or homemade*
12ozprawns or large shrimp (about 20 to 24) cooked and peeled
sea salt to taste
1tablespooncilantro,roughly chopped (optional)
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet. Add sliced sausage and cook, stirring occasionally until browned. Remove from skillet with tongs or a slotted spoon. Set aside in a bolw and cover to keep warm.
If there isn't enough oil left from browning the sausage, add a little more. Add shrimp. Cook for 1 minute without stirring, then stir and flip and cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from the skillet and transfer to the bowl with the sausage.
If necessary, add a little more oil to the skillet and cook the celery, onion and red pepper, stirring until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the Cajun seasoning, and stir while cooking for about 1 minute.
Add the rice and continue stirring while cooking until rice is warm, about 3 minutes. Add the cooked shrimp and sausage and cook, stirring until heated through, about 2 minutes.
Check the seasoning, adding sea salt if necessary. Garnish with green onions (scallions) and/or cilantro and serve immediately.
*see recipe for How to Make Cajun Seasoning MixLeaving the tails on the prawns or shrimp is optional. Prawn shells add flavour and they look attractive, but some people don't like to have to get their fingers in their food to remove the tails. You decide!While andouille sausage is traditional in Cajun cuisine, you can easily substitute chorizo sausage.
