Cajun Pasta

I wrote a post before about Mexican pasta with shrimp. I modified the recipe a little bit so I am reposting my recipe. I also changed the title. I hope you like. Enjoy!!!

This is a recipe I created. I love to cook and try new things. Once I tried Chorizo sausage, I knew I had to create a recipe that incorporated the sausage and my other favorite food group – shrimp. My family loves shrimp and sausage. This makes a tasty dish. Serve it with a salad and bread. It is great!

1.lb. chorizo raw sausage
1 lb. shrimp–peedled and deveined
2 teaspoons cumin–divided
2 teaspoons cajun seasoning–divided
Juice and zest of 1 lime
kosher salt
1/4 cup Olive Oil plus 1 tablespoon
1 cup white wine
1 1/2 cup chicken stock or broth
1 ladle pasta water
1 pound linguini cooked per package directions

Cook sausage in a large skillet with 1 tbsp olive oil until cooked through. Drain well both skillet and sausage. While sausage is cooking marinate shrimp in olive oil one half of the lime juice and zest, cajun seasoning, cumin, 1/2 salt and pepper.

Cook pasta per package directions. While pasta is cooking saute garlic in the same skillet as sausage; add shrimp and cook until pink.

Deglaze pan with white wine. Add sausage, chicken stock, pasta water, rest of cajun seasoning and cumin, and rest of salt and pepper, and cook for 5 minutes. Add drained pasta, cilantro, rest of lime and zest, and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
