Shrimp & sausage veggie skillet is an easy one pan 20 minute dinner! Easy to make, full of protein & veggies, and lots of flavor. It’s one of our favorites to throw together for a simple meal. You can also do just shrimp or just sausage. We’ve done both ways and love both!
What you need to make shrimp & sausage veggie skillet:
- Shrimp- We use peeled and deveined shrimp, but you can also do it yourself. You can easily make this recipe with just shrimp or just sausage as well!
- Sausage- Our favorite sausage for this is the Teton polish sausages that we buy at Costco. You could also substitute with chicken sausage or any other sausage you prefer.
- Bell peppers- Feel free to use any color you’d like. Yellow & red are our favorites to add color with the zucchini.
- Zucchini- Zucchini goes so well with this shrimp & sausage veggie skillet. However, if you want to skip it, you could easily just replace with white or yellow onion.
- Cajun seasoning- The Primal Palate New BAE seasoning is our go-to for this one! You can easily use whatever you have or make your own!
- Avocado oil- We always use avocado oil for high heat cooking, but you can also use olive oil.
