This is a recipe I created. I love to cook and try new things. Once I tried Chorizo sausage, I knew I had to create a recipe that incorporated the sausage and my other favorite food group – shrimp. My family loves shrimp and sausage. This makes a tasty dish. Serve it with a salad and bread. It is great!


  1. 1Cook sausage in a large skillet with 1 tbsp olive oil until cooked through. Drain well both skillet and sausage. While sausage is cooking marinate shrimp in olive oil one half of the lime juice and zest, cajun seasoning, cumin, 1/2 salt and pepper.
  2. 2Cook pasta per package directions. While pasta is cooking saute garlic in the same skillet as sausage; add shrimp and cook until pink.
  3. 3Deglaze pan with white wine. Add sausage, chicken stock, pasta water, rest of cajun seasoning and cumin, and rest of salt and pepper, and cook for 5 minutes. Add drained pasta, cilantro, rest of lime and zest, and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
