  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic * minced
  • 3 sweet peppers * I use red, orange, and yellow, cut into thin strips

  • cauliflower rice * for serving


  • Add the olive oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Place the shrimp in the skillet and season with 1 teaspoon of the Cajun seasoning.

  • Add the chicken, sausage, and 1 teaspoon of the Cajun seasoning to the same skillet.
  • Cook until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 5-7 minutes, and remove to the plate with the shrimp.
  • Lower the heat to medium and add a drizzle of oil, if needed.
  • Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Stir in the peppers, onions, and the last teaspoon of Cajun seasoning.
  • Cook until the peppers and onions are soft, about 5-7 minutes.
