Fragrant Chicken and Shrimp

  • 4 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest (from 2 lemons)
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated orange zest (from 2 oranges)
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 8 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 8 oz. large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon cooking fat of your choice - I used bacon bat

Combine the first 6 ingredients (lemon zest through coarse salt) to form a spice rub.

Season the prepared chicken and shrimp with the spice rub and press firmly to help it adhere. Let rest while you prepare the skillet.

Add the cooking fat of your choice to a large skillet and place over medium-high heat. When the cooking fat is hot, add the chicken and shrimp and sauté until fragrant and cooked through, about 12-15 minutes.

Add the cooked chicken and shrimp to your favorite pasta, rice, or salad dishes as a great protein source.
