Shrimp and Chorizo "Rice"

Makes 6 servings

Recipe ingredients:

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

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.  Remove from the heat and add the scallions, cilantro and lime juice.  Season with salt and pepper to taste before serving. 


Recipe notes:

* Cajun seasoning is a blend and can be found in the spices section of most grocery stores.

** To "rice" your cauliflower you can chop it by hand with a knife, or rub it over a box grater, but the easiest way I've found is to use this method by Big Red Kitchen.
