This is probably the seven hundred thirty-two times I’ve told you how much I love fried food, but I’m not going to stop now. I still do, after all this time and all those recipes. A complete meal in one baking pan and only one dish to wash! It is the ideal situation for dinner. And this… ohhhhh this is a record. With both succulent prawns Y Smoked sausage and lots and lots of veggies, all stuffed in a mixture of smoked Cajun toppings, is the stuff that dinner dreams are made of.

This is the cast of characters:

Zucchini, green pepper, onion, yellow squash, asparagus. (I told you there were loads of vegetables). Shrimp. Andouille sausage. A generous serving of cajun smoked seasoning. Sounds like heaven, right? It’s close enough.

Toss everything together (including a little olive oil) and spread out on a baking sheet to cook. That is all! This is dinner!

But Kristy, won’t it be too full? Don’t you steam everything instead of grilling it?

Therefore, this is a concern for fried foods. When you pack everything in a single tray, most of the liquid ingredients release their juice and if things are too crowded in that tray, they tend to vaporize since the air doesn’t have room to circulate. That Energy it means every ingredient doesn’t get the most ideal cooking method possible, but it also means you can get through your entire dinner with no problem. It’s a bit of compromise.

BUT, there is an easy solution. You can always use two baking sheets and cook similar ingredients together. Stack your watery vegetables in one, like yellow squash and zucchini, and your protein in the other. Simply split the dressings and flavorings between the two (you can keep the cooking time the same) and you’ll give your ingredients a little more room to reach their full potential.

You don’t have to do this here, no way. You can use a single pan, put it all together, pop it in the oven, put it away, and return to a dinner that’s so filling and tastes so good, you’ll feel like you’ve spent hours working on it. But it really is done in less than thirty minutes!
