This is the sausage I used, however you can use whatever you like. There's a pretty big selection I have found at the supermarket ( in the hot dog section)

Then add in the frozen shrimp and cook for another 5 minutes. *the sausage and shrimp are already cooked so don't cook longer than 10-15 minutes at the most or they will get dry.
