2. Heat olive oil (medhi) in a pot then add the onions and celery. Saute for a minute, stirring. Add garlic, salt & pepper plus other seasonings, bay leaf and the fresh thyme. Cook for 1 minute, careful not to burn. Add all the Peppers, cook two minutes, then the tomatoes and chicken stock. Bring to simmer then add the rice. Let it cook, stirring occasionally, until almost tender, about 10 minutes.
3. Cut the sausage into chunks and add it to the pot along with the seasoned raw shrimp. Let simmer another 10 minutes until the shrimp has turned pink and cooked through.
4. Serve into bowls then garnish with Parsley & Green Onions. Enjoy!
