2 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
341 gm Shrimp, raw (peeled and deveined)
341 gm Sausage, frankfurter, chicken (sliced into 2-inch rounds)
1 onion(s) Sweet onion (finely chopped )
2 clove(s) Garlic (minced )
1 1/2 cup White rice, long-grain, dry
1 dash Paprika
1 dash Turmeric, ground
1 can(s) (14oz) Diced tomatoes, canned
2 can (15oz) Chicken broth (stock), low sodium
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Black pepper
1 cup Frozen green peas (thawed)


In a heavy 12-inch sauté pan, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Cook shrimp until just pink on both sides, 4 to 5 minutes (do not overcook). Transfer to a plate.

Add remaining tablespoon oil and sausage to pan; cook over medium-high heat until beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Add onion, and cook, stirring frequently, until translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and rice; cook, stirring to coat, until rice is translucent, 1 to 2 minutes.

Stir in paprika, turmeric, tomatoes, and broth, scraping up browned bits from bottom of pan with a wooden spoon. Season with salt and pepper.

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cover, and cook until rice is tender and has absorbed almost all liquid, 20 to 25 minutes. Stir in peas; cook 1 minute. Stir in cooked shrimp; serve immediately.
