Real Simple's Shrimp with Sausage and Tomatoes and My Recipes' Deep South Shrimp and Sausage are both good shrimp and sausage recipes. Each can be served over rice or alongside cooked grits to make a complete meal. My Recipes' shrimp and sausage recipe offers a lighter, lower-calorie alternative.
To make Real Simple's Shrimp with Sausage and Tomatoes, heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large pan set over medium heat. Cook 1 pound of Italian sausage with 2 sliced onions for 10 minutes. Pour a 28-ounce can of diced tomatoes into the pan. Add 20 peeled, deveined shrimp, 1 cup frozen peas, and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer the mixture for three to five minutes, or until the shrimp are opaque.
Alternatively, cook 3/4 pound of shrimp in a large skillet coated with cooking spray. Season it with 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and cook it for three minutes before transferring the shrimp to a bowl to keep it warm. Return the pan to the stove and cook 1 cup chopped bell peppers in cooking spray for two minutes before browning 6.5 ounces sliced smoked turkey sausage. Add the shrimp and 2 cloves minced garlic to the pan, sautéing the mixture for two minutes. Deglaze the pan with 1/4 cup water, remove the skillet from the heat and let it stand for two minutes before serving the dish.
