Skillet meals are a staple in our home, although I lovingly refer to them as shiz in a pan, I didn’t really think that would be appropriate for this recipe title. Plus, it doesn’t really describe just how delicious the dish is and it is delicious. This shrimp and sausage skillet can also be made in 30 minutes, which can be a lifesaver on a busy weeknight or any night of the week really.

What I love about a skillet meal is that while they are simple, you can still have tons of flavor. Each step in this recipe builds another layer of flavor. When you brown the sausage, you render some of the fat. Then you cook the onions, peppers, and garlic in that fat for even better taste. The shrimp and all the spices are what really pulls this dish together. It is so yummy and comforting.
This meal also makes for great meal prepping! It holds up well and is great paired with some cauliflower rice if you want to make it stretch out a little longer. I love to have this for lunches at work. It is filling and has a great ratio of veggies, fat and protein to keep me fueled for the day.
