Cajun Shrimp Kabobs with Dirty Rice Recipe

If you're looking for a dirty rice recipe using chicken livers, you won't find it here. I substituted bacon. This household doesn't do the liver thing.

1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 cup your favorite Cajun marinade (I used a prepared)

Preheat grill over medium high heat.

Marinade shrimp 1 hour. Drain well and discard marinade. Skewer shrimp
and grill a few minutes per side or til shrimp are cooked.

Serve shrimp with dirty rice.

Dirty Rice
olive oil
6 slices lean or center cut bacon
1 small onion, minced
1/2 green bell pepper, finely chopped
1/4 cup celery, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
Cajun seasoning to taste
1 cup chicken broth
1 bay leaf
3 cups cooked white rice
In a large frying pan, heat a little oil over medium heat. Saute bacon til fat starts to render. Stir in onion, bell pepper and celery and cook til softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook a few seconds. Add seasoning.
Add the broth and bay leaf and bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the rice and heat through.
Discard bay leaf.
Serve shrimp with rice.
