Hello peeps! Hope you had a fantastic weekend! Mine was short but sunny and very enjoyable! After coming home from work on Saturday, my husband surprised me with a delicious dinner cooked by him – Moroccan Grilled Salmon. We also had two tickets to the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra, so that was a nice end of the day. What a great date night!

Tax season is in full swing, which means long hours, busy work days and 1 day weekends for me. Between working 60 hours a week, commute and taking care of the usual household chores, cooking during the week is almost impossible for me right now. But I am looking forward to the Sundays when I can get creative in the kitchen and stock up on food for the week. One of my creations last week was this spicy sausage and shrimp skillet. It comes together in about 30 minutes, and it is easy to make. And oh-so-flavorful!

This meal reminds me of a meal my grandma used to make for us when we were children. We also added crumbled feta cheese on top, it made the meal perfect. I remember I loved it so much I always cleaned my plate. And I still do. 🙂

This sausage and shrimp skillet brings back sweet memories of my childhood. The flavors of the cooked onion, red & green bell peppers and the zucchini create a delicious Mediterranean taste. Add the spicy sausage and shrimp, and you have a fabulous (like my husband said) easy one pot meal. This will definitely get on my list for favorite weeknight meals!

What you need

3 Tbsp olive oil

8 oz shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 medium onion, diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 green bell pepper, diced

1 medium zucchini, sliced

pepper and salt, to taste

2 Tbsp tomato paste

1/2 cup chicken broth

2 large gloves garlic, minced

Preparation

Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add shrimp to skillet and cook shrimp until just opaque in center, stirring often, about 5 minutes. Transfer shrimp to a plate.

Add 1 Tbsp olive oil to skillet and saute onion until translucent. Add peppers and sausage, cover and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. If necessary, add another Tbsp of olive oil if veggies are sticking to the skillet.

This Mediterranean spicy sausage and shrimp skillet goes wonderfully with crumbled feta cheese on top. Try it, I promise you won’t regret it. It seems like the flavors are even richer that way.
