This one-dish wonder packs all the flavours of New Orleans by combining tender shrimp, new potatoes, chunks of corn and smoky sausage in a flavourful broth. Plus, simply use the grill function to quickly make golden garlic toasts for dipping.
Thinly slice onion and garlic.
Add onion, garlic and 2 tbsp butter to oval microwave-proof casserole dish (2.8 quart) and cover with a glass top or plastic wrap to lock in steam. Cook 3 minutes on 100% power. Remove glass top/plastic wrap (be careful – steam is hot).
Add potatoes, corn, sliced smoked sausage and seasoning. Stir to combine well.
Add broth and bay leaves. Cover with glass top/plastic wrap. Cook, stirring once, for 15-20 minutes at 100% power until potatoes are tender.
Add shrimp, re-cover with glass top/plastic wrap and cook 3 more minutes or until just cooked through. Remove dish from microwave and keep warm.
In a small bowl, stir together softened butter and garlic. Brush over baguette quarters and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place bread directly on metal grill rack. Using the GRILL function, grill until golden and toasted, approximately 3 minutes.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer shrimp, sausage, potatoes and corn to a large serving bowl. Toss with a ½ cup of cooking liquid, lemon juice and chopped parsley. Serve with garlic toast and hot sauce, if desired.
