Shrimp and Sausage Dressing is my recipe of the day. With Thanksgiving this week, it is a perfect side dish to accompany any sort of poultry, ham or seafood you may be serving.

Shrimp and Sausage Dressing

The ingredients are simple enough. Instead of the usual mirepoix this will use bell pepper in place of carrot as part of the Cajun Trinity. That is the combination of bell peppers, celery and onion. The trinity is used in almost every Cajun recipe.

Other additions include shrimp and the spicy Andouille sausage. Andouille is a type of smoked sausage. You can use regular smoked sausage if you like it less spicy. If you like spicier, I find a splash of hot sauce really pairs well with the other flavors.
