Shrimp and Chorizo Dirty “Rice” (Low Carb and Gluten Free)


If you’ve been following IBIH for awhile then you know how much I love Chorizo.  It’s spicy, tangy, and adds amazing flavor to just about anything!  This low carb dirty “rice” recipe is no exception.  Using cauliflower as rice is nothing new, but I hadn’t tried it before.  I liked it, and can definitely see potential for future recipes.  Some people (like my husband) have serious issues with the sometimes skunky flavor of cauliflower.  Adding the flavorful chorizo to this recipe helps mask the flavor of the cauliflower, and makes it super delicious!  So easy to make, this recipe comes together really quickly and is definitely a keeper!

 

Ingredients :

  • 1/2 lb raw chorizo
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning*
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp prepared salsa
  • 1 lb medium shrimp, raw
  • 2 cups cauliflower, riced**
  • 1/4 cup scallions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions :

  1. Remove chorizo from the casing and cook in a large saute pan. Add the wine and reduce by half. Add the butter, Cajun seasoning, garlic powder, salsa, and shrimp to the pan. Cook for about 2 minutes. Add the cauliflower and cook for another 5 minutes until the shrimp are cooked through.
  2. Remove from the heat and add the scallions, cilantro and lime juice.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste before serving.
