  • Summary

    A healthier twist on a Cajun classic, the addition of shrimp turns this “dirty brown rice” into a fabulous main dish. I’d like to think of this as a Cajun shrimp fried rice. With Mardi Gras ending tomorrow, I thought this would be the perfect timing to share this recipe from the archives because I LOVE this dish!

    • chicken bouillon cube (Knorr)
    • 2 bay leaves, divided
    • 1/8 + 1/4 tsp cayenne, divided
