One of the great joys of cooking for me is finding flavor combinations that work together beautifully even though they come from completely different cooking traditions. That’s what this dinner does. It takes a wonderful Cajun dish from Bon Appetit full of shrimp and spicy sausage in a truly delicious mustard sauce and pairs it with an Indian side dish. In itself, each dish is wonderful to eat. Put them together and you create another sensation on the plate. And it even comes down to color: The green beans are the perfect counterpoint to the bright red peppers, pink shrimp and golden sausage. And to top it all off, you can get the whole dish on the table in something like 35 minutes.
