Cook brown rice according to package directions with chicken stock instead of water (see note), along with bay leaves, TABASCO®, paprika, and thyme.
When brown rice is close to being done, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper and garlic and saute until translucent.
Add in sausage and cook, breaking it up, cooked through and no longer pink. Add in shrimp, salt and pepper. Continue cooking until shrimp is pink.
Once the rice is done, toss the shrimp and sausage along with the rice. Pour into a serving dish and top with chopped parsley. Serve with additional TABASCO® hot sauces if desired.
