  • Bacon aka lardons!
  • 2 tablespoons Water
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Onion I used a spring onion I used from my csa box
  • Garlic
  • Bell Pepper i chose yellow
  • Chicken Broth
  • Tomato Paste
  • 12 Shrimp mine were frozen and pre cooked/shelled
  • 3 Sausages
  • Tony Cachere's Original Creole Seasoning
  • Smoked Paprika Red Pepper


  • In low-medium heat pan, render down the lardons to release all that yummy bacon fat
  • Add in the water, butter and onions - sautee/simmer until onions become transparent --raise to medium high heat--
  • Dump in garlic, bell pepper, broth, and tomato paste and let meld, few dashes of the creole seasoning & smoked paprika (be light handed if you don't like it too spicy)
  • Add in the shrimp and sausage - let it all simmer for about ten minutes - spice to taste with more creole seasoning (and more smoked paprika if you want more of a kick)
