Grilled Polenta with Cajun Shrimp and Chicken Sausage

I picked up a tube of polenta from Trader Joe’s the other day with no idea what I wanted to do with it. I decided maybe I’d try a healthier version of shrimp and grits, which somehow transformed into this spicy dish, which I think has earned a spot in my rotation because it’s delicious, easy, and healthy!
serves 2
  • Polenta – sliced in to 4 1/2inch patties
  • 1/4lb Shrimp – fresh or frozen
  • 2 links of Trader Joe’s Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage
  • 1 tspn Cajun Spice
  • 1 tspn Butter
  • Fresh Parsley, to taste

Slice polenta and cook in a grill pan on medium-high heat (can also use a regular pan, but you won’t get the fun grill marks). Heat butter in a pan over medium heat, add cajun spice and stir around until bubbly. Add sausage and cook for about a minute, then add spice and cook until they are pink and curled. Place polenta on a plate and pour shrimp and sausage over it. Serve topped with fresh parshley, and a side of grilled zucchini!
