Cook’s Note: Use your nose when buying fresh shrimp—it should smell like the sea, and an ammonia odor indicates spoilage. (You could use frozen shrimp, but fresh shrimp have a better texture and taste.)

What to drink: A Riesling with a hint of sweetness will cool the spiciness of the andouille sausage.
