This is one of those dishes that I could eat every week. It is so easy but so very yummy. This shrimp and sausage skillet has flavor, texture and is made with healthy ingredients. This recipe is Paleo, Keto and Whole30 compliant. Just make sure to check the labels on your sausage if you are doing a round of Whole30.
How To Serve This Dish:
In our family, we eat it as is! I just serve it in a bowl. But if you wanted to bulk it up a bit you could serve it over cauliflower rice to keep it both Keto and Whole30. It would be delicious over regular rice as well.
What Kind of Shrimp and Sausage do I use?
- For Shrimp - I use and recommend large wild caught shrimp that have been peeled and deveined. You also want raw, not pre-cooked. And I personally love to keep the tails on for added flavor and presentation, but you can get tail-off shrimp as well
- For Sausage - I love to use andouille for this recipe. It pairs so well with the shrimp and with the seasonings. If you can't find andouille that is Whole30 compliant, I also love and use smoked sausage (kielbasa).
