Cajun Zucchini Noodle Stew With Shrimp And Sausage

Posted by Debbie Perez on


INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1 sliced andouille chicken sausage
  • 4 oz shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup celery, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tsp cajun seasoning
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • salt, to taste
  • 2 bay leaves
  • parsley for garnish

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Spiralize zucchini using a spiralizer with a 3-millimiter blade.
  2. Place your zucchini noodles in a colander (set over a large bowl) and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Toss to coat and let stand so the noodles can release some water.
  3. In a large pan, heat the olive oil on medium-high heat. Add in the Cajun seasoning and garlic and cook until garlic is golden brown and fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Add the sliced pepper, onion, and celery, and cook until vegetables are lightly browned and tender, about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Reduce the temperature to medium, and add in the sliced chicken sausage. Cook until the sausage is slightly browned about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add in the diced tomatoes, chicken broth, tomato paste, and bay leaves. Stir until the tomato sauce has broken down into the sauce. Raise the heat to medium-high, and bring to a boil.
  7. Once boiling, reduce the heat back to medium and let simmer, uncovered until the sauce has thickened and reduced by about half, about 10 minutes.
  8. Add in the shrimp, cover the pan, and cook until the shrimp is opaque about 2-3 minutes.
  9. Squeeze out as much moisture from the zucchini noodles as you can, and then pat dry on a paper towel.
  10. Divide the zucchini noodles between two bowls, then divide the stew on top of them. Garnish with fresh parsley, and devour.
