Garlic Shrimp With Sausage And Broccoli “Rice” Recipe

About a year or so ago I started having allergic reactions to shrimp – pretty bad ones. I figured it was because, duh, I’m allergic. Allergy testing came back negative for it a few months ago. I know testing is not always the most reliable (symptoms are), but the testing got me thinking – so many things are contaminated with corn and corny products (which is one of my worst food allergies). Maybe that was the case with the shrimp. After all, all of the shrimp I reacted to had been from the same place.

Last week I got up the nerve to trial shrimp again, but this time I purchased it from a different store. No reaction! Woot! Here’s the recipe I made to celebrate. Shrimp is one of my favorite foods, so in case you couldn’t tell, I’m pretty excited about this.

Garlic Shrimp With Sausage And Broccoli “Rice” Recipe

Ingredients:

1 lb raw shrimp – wild caught is best

4 cloves of garlic

3 tablespoons cooking fat – ghee, butter, bacon fat, or coconut oil

½ lb cooked broccoli

4 sausage links – I used Applegate Farms, which are precooked. If you are using raw/uncooked sausage please cook them before following this recipe.

 

I did not put any seasoning on my shrimp other than garlic because I used spicy flavor-filled sausage. If you use a more mild sausage I would recommend seasoning the shrimp with sea salt, black pepper, and paprika, in addition to the garlic.

 

Making It:

  1. Peel and de-vein the shrimp.
  2. Peel the garlic. Put two of them through a garlic press, and finely chop the other two.
  3. Put the cooking fat, shrimp, and all of the garlic into a pan on the stove. Cook on medium to medium high heat for about 4-6 minutes, or until the shrimp become slightly pink.
  4. Put the sausage links (you can put them in whole) and the broccoli into a food processor, and process until it’s about the same size as rice.
  5. Remove the shrimp from the pan and set aside. Put the sausage and broccoli “rice” into that same pan that you removed the shrimp from (the wonderful flavors will remain, and will coat the sausage/broccoli mixture) and cook for about 5 minutes, or until the broccoli is heated through. The sausage should have enough moisture and fat in it that you don’t need a cooking fat. Feel free to use one to coat the pan, though.
  6. In a bowl layer the sausage and broccoli “rice” with the shrimp on top.

  1. Appreciate it! That was great and so easy for making.

  2. I love seeing all your different ways to get the “same” foods that my family loves.

  3. I didn’t realize shrimp would have corn ingredients – interesting! We are all shrimp lovers here, so I’m pinning this to try!

    • It\’s not necessarily the shrimp, but something corny in cross contamination – like the ice they put it on or something in the harvesting of it. I\’m pretty sensitive to cross contamination.

    • Oh, and thanks for the pin!

  4. Oh bacon fat would make this incredible! I would also use apple wood smoked sea salt :)

  5. Sharonna says:

    I was wondering how you cooked the brocoli. Roasted or steamed? And did you let it cool before putting in the processor?

    • I always roast my broccoli because I like the taste better when it’s cooked that way. As far as letting it cool goes, it really depends on your food processor. Some processors say not to put in hot food. If it doesn’t say that, then it’s really up to you.

  6. I won’t eat any but wild caught any longer. The farmed is probably what got you – they feed them corn!

    This looks yummy!

    • Yeah, I can’t eat any farm raised fish/seafood. Ick. I was actually reacting negatively to the wild caught shrimp at one particular grocery store because of (as it turned out) cross-contamination with something that contained corn (which I’m severely allergic to). Most likely the ice they use or some sort of packaging.

  7. Yum! That does look good. Shrimp is one of my favorites.

  8. I’m wondering if raw frozen broccoli would work for the “rice”?? Has anyone had success or tried ricing frozen broccoli?

    • You would have to at least defrost it first so that it will \”rice\” properly in the food processor. I used frozen broccoli for mine – I quickly defrosted it in the microwave (stove-top would work as well), then tossed it in my food processor. Only took a few minutes.
