Shrimp and sausage skillet – quick, easy, Paleo meal

shrimp and sausage skillet

This one-pan meal comes together in 20-minutes or less, and has protein, lots of veggies, and healthy fats — what’s not to love?! Plus it’s flexible – change out the veggies, use a different sausage, experiment with spices, leave out the shrimp — it’ll still come out great. And it’s Paleo, too! No processed food here.

The recipe is by Paleo Newbie, so I’ll just link to her recipe at the end. Here’s her photo; a little sexier than mine, eh?

It’s pretty quick and easy as-is, but I like to do a little ingredient prep earlier in the day, so at dinner time, everything just goes into the pan without any measuring or chopping.

As you can see in my prep (photo below), I did the following:

  • Chopped the shrimp in half, for more bite-sized pieces.
  • Added some of the spices to the shrimp for a dry marinade.
  • Used a different kind of sausage — cooked and crumbled. (Check out my homemade sausage recipes.)
  • Used only one color of bell pepper, and added mushrooms.

I group together the ingredients that go into the pan at the same time. I just cover all these and stick them in the fridge till it’s go-time.

This is a recipe I turn to again and again. My hubs and I both love the flavor, and I love how easy it is to cook up and put on the table!
