New Orleans Style "Dirty" Fried Rice

SERVES: 6 PREP: 10 minutes TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes

There are lots of ways to get dirty that don’t involve a mud mask. This is one of them.

One of my favorite ways to get dirty is this skillet rice. It's filled with sausage, green peppers, and a VERY healthy dose of Cayenne pepper to remind that you’re not in Blandville anymore. You could use cauli rice here, or quinoa, but few things are more satisfying than actually using up all the rice leftovers from a blowout night of Chinese takeout.

  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 6 ounces smoked spicy kielbasa sausage, diced

  • 8 ounces peeled, cleaned shrimp, diced

  • 1 jumbo green bell pepper, seeded and diced

  • 1 jumbo onion, diced

  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic

  • 1 tablespoon paprika

  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt

  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano

  • 1 teaspoon cayenn pepper (or more to taste)

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 3 cups cooked rice (type of your choice, just not risotto rice)

  • 1 cup chopped green onions

  • ½ cup finely chopped fresh parsley

Cast Iron is the secret to restaurant-quality textures: think crispy fried eggs, perfectly seared steak, and crusty cornbread....
