Today’s recipe: Herbie likes spaghetti

The Result Get ready for some hot! This turned out to be incredibly spicy, but if you like spicy with a full body of flavor underneath, you’ll love this dish!

Making the Dish

What You'll Need

[diced veggies] 3-4 links smoked andouille sausage
1 lb 20-24 ct shrimp, deveined and rinsed
1 medium onion, diced
1 rib celery, diced
1 medium green bell pepper, diced
1 vine ripened tomato, seeded and diced
1 tablespoon butter
4 cups chicken stock
2 cups long-grain brown rice, rinsed
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, minced
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
3 bay leaves
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2-4 teaspoons hot sauce (optional)
1/2 cup chopped scallions
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
Juice of one lemon

The Result

Get ready for some hot! This turned out to be incredibly spicy, but if you like spicy with a full body of flavor underneath, you’ll love this dish! The tomato flavor coupled with the chicken and sausage and shrimp work really well together, and the various herbs compliment everything quite nicely.

Truth be told, we’ll probably tone down the extra red pepper sauce next time, because this ended up being a touch too hot for us. But that’s probably just us! What do you think? The hotter the better? What are some other spicy dishes we should try out?
