Season The Shrimp.

  • Combine shrimp, complete seasoning, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. If you want, you can remove the shell and tail. However, I keep them on because they add more flavor to the dish.

  • Remove the seasoned shrimp and sausage from the refrigerator and set aside at room temperature for about 15 minutes before cooking.
  • In a cast iron pot heat olive oil for 1 minute. Add the sausage to the heated oil and stir until the reddish-pink sausage turns brown.
    The sausage has a high-fat content, which will be rendered off during cooking.
  • Dump the shrimp onto the sausage mixture and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp is orange-pink in color.
  • Add the vinegar, BBQ sauce, crushed garlic, cut onions, and dried thyme leaves to the shrimp and sausage mixture. Cook for another 2 minutes over low to medium heat, stirring constantly.
