12 ounces smoked sausage or andouille sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
2 tsp. Cajun Seasoning
1 tbsp minced garlic
2 cups long-grain white rice, rinsed
4 cups chicken stock + 1 cup water
14.5 oz can tomatoes (diced)
1 bay leaf
12-16 oz. medium or large raw shrimp (peeled & deveined)
3 thinly sliced green onions
In a large pot or dutch oven, heat the oil over medium to medium high heat. Add the onions, peppers, and celery, and season with a pinch of salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Cook for 7-8 minutes, until slightly softened.
Add the sausage, and cajun seasoning, and continue cooking for 5 minutes, until the fat from the sausage have rendered out and further softened the vegetables.
Add the garlic and stir for 30 seconds, then add the rice. Stir continuously for 3 minutes to gently toast the rice.
Add the chicken stock, 1 cup of water, tomatoes, and bay leaf, bring the liquid to a boil, then reduce to a simmer over low heat.
Cover the pan with a lid and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally so the rice doesn’t burn on the bottom.
When the liquid is mostly absorbed and the rice is nearly tender, stir in the shrimp and cover with a lid, simmer for 3-5 more minutes, to gently cook the shrimp. Stir in green onions. Taste for seasoning and add hot sauce is desired.
