Seasoned Cook: This is a great recipe for festive occasions. It’s fast and easy but looks like you took a long time in the kitchen. Shrimp is high in protein and low in calories and fat. Read the label carefully for fat content in sausage.


Method

  • In a medium nonstick skillet, heat olive oil. Sauté onion, sausage, chicken breast, and red pepper until sausage is cooked all the way through, about 5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the cooked rice, peas, lemon juice, garlic, coriander, and turmeric.
  • Add rice mixture to the skillet and stir until combined. Place shrimp on top, reduce heat to low, and simmer until shrimp are pink, about 3 minutes. If rice mixture is drying out, add a few Tablespoons of water to keep it moist.
