For a quick and easy low carb and delicious meal, this spicy shrimp & sausage skillet fits the bill ~and is Paleo and Faster Way to Fat Loss approved (minus the white rice).
This is one of my go-to meals for quick & easy weeknight dinners. It is a hit with all of my fam, and I never have any left over. We love savory & spicy, so this dish fits the bill.
My Faster Way to Fat Loss journey (read about it here) changed a lot of my weeknight cooking. Before FWTFL, I made this recipe, but I always served it with tons of white rice LOL. Today, I serve this with cauliflower rice or (on regular carb days), brown rice. (This French onion brown rice is SO good and is made in a rice cooker.)
In the video below, I share some of my fave quick and easy weeknight meals for the Faster Way to Fat Loss lifestyle.
Sausage: I’ve used all kinds of sausage for this dish but hands down prefer hickory smoked Conecuh sausage. The healthier chicken and turkey sausage options are good, but for the richest, most savory flavor, Conecuh is hard to beat.
Make ahead: Cut peppers and onions into chunks. Cut sausage into 3-4″ pieces. Store in ziploc bags in the fridge. Place shrimp (if frozen) in a bowl to begin thawing.
Skillet Options: I often use this 15″ cast iron skillet. It is huge, but it is perfect for one skillet meals like this one (or ginormous cobblers or crisps:-).
If using non-stick, I use this T-Fal jumbo nonstick skillet. It is a wonderful, budget savvy all around skillet that can be used for myriad dishes.
I hope to hear from you if you try this, so please leave comments! Thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
