Michael Symon's Shrimp and Chorizo

So this was one of Aaron's favorite meals ever :), and like all Michael Symon's 5 in 5 recipes, this was easy and delicious. Aaron gave this a perfect 10, Noah gave it a 9, and Owen and I gave it an 8, I thought it was a tiny bit too orangey. For five servings, each serving was 284 calories, and the spicy sausage with the shrimp was so great. Here's what to do:

1 lb shrimp, shelled and deveined
1/2 lb chorizo
4 T chopped fresh oregano leaves
1 t cumin
14.5 oz diced tomatoes
salt and pepper
Grated zest and juice of 2 oranges

Cook the chorizo until browned, add the shrimp, then cook for one minute. Add in the tomatoes, oregano, cumin, and orange juice and zest. Season to taste and serve.

We had this with rice pilaf, and it was a great meal.


  1. It looks so good, but the sausage does not sound good. Too Spicy for me. Love mom

  2. Beautiful presentation, too. The lines on the plate add a lot to the presentation. Love mom
