  • >½ teaspoons Cajun seasoning*
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 1 pound large fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined (tails removed)
  • 1 (10.5-ounce) can cream of celery soup

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large sauté pan, cook sausage over medium-high heat until browned and crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove sausage and let drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
  3. In same pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, celery, and bell peppers; cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are softened, 7 to 10 minutes. Add garlic, Cajun seasoning, oregano, and lemon zest; cook until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add wine; cook until wine is reduced by half, 2 to 3 minutes. Add shrimp, tossing to combine with vegetables. Cook until shrimp are pink around edges, 1 minute. Stir in soup, ½ cup water, parsley, Worcestershire, lemon juice, salt, and cooked sausage. Fold in cooked rice. Spoon into prepared baking dish and sprinkle evenly with Parmesan.
  4. Bake until shrimp are cooked and edges are bubbly, 15 to 20 minutes. Increase oven temperature to broil and bake until cheese is golden, 2 to 3 minutes more. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving with lemon wedges. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
