Low Carb Sausage and Shrimp Cajun Skillet

I usually prep this one ahead. I chop of most of the veggies and sausage. It makes dinner come together in about 15-20 minutes. No need for a drive thru on a busy night. Make this as spicy as your family likes. I add a little Cajun seasoning to the skillet and then those that like more heat can sprinkle more on their individual servings. This dish is full of fresh veggies. If you don’t eat shrimp or want to save a little money, buy two packages of sausage. If you are eating this in the THM S setting, or low carb, check the carb count on your sausage package. And as always, add more or less spice/seasonings for your family’s tastes.

1 12-16 oz Package of Sausage
1 12 oz Package of Frozen Shrimp- Deveined, Shelled, and Thawed
1 Bunch of Asparagus, woody ends removed, Cut into Thirds
2-3 Yellow Squash, Sliced
1-2 Zucchini, Sliced
1 Can Fire Roasted Tomatoes
1 Medium to Large Onion, Diced
1-2 t Minced Garlic
1 t Salt
1/2 t Black Pepper
1/4-2 t Cajun Seasoning
1/2-1 T Olive Oil

1. Drizzle Olive oil into a large skillet over medium heat. Add diced onion and cook for about 5 minutes, until onion has softened. Add garlic and cook another 2 minutes.
2. Turn the heat up to medium high and add the veggies, the sausage and the canned tomatoes. Cook until veggies are soft. Add in seasonings and stir.
3. Add thawed shrimp to the skillet and cook just until the shrimp turns pink, about 2 to 4 minutes.
4. Serve in bowls with extra seasoning, as desired.
