  • 1 pound shrimp (fresh, you can also use crabmeat or crayfish if you can get them)
  • turkey
  • 2 andouille sausage
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken thighs (you can sub in about 2 cups leftover, cooked chicken diced up)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion (nice large, diced)
  • 2 stalks celery (diced)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper (Turkish, paste, I use this instead of bell pepper, but you don't need both. Also, if you don't already have this, just skip it)
  • 2 tablespoons cajun spice mix (see below)
  • 2 teaspoons flour
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock (low or no sodium added)
  • 1 can tomatoes (14.5 ounces diced, fire-roasted, no salt added, if you can't find fire roasted, use regular)
  • 1 cup brown rice (medium grain, or mekong flower rice, I use Uncle Ben's in the orange bag for this. Lundberg's also has one.)
  • 3 1/2 scallions (sliced)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons onion powder

    Needs a little more seasoning, but other than that, it was really good. Easy to make. Next time I will season the meat before cooking.
