About 15 minutes before rice is done, crumble sausage into 1-inch chunks in a 10- to 12-inch frying pan over medium-high heat.
Stir occasionally until sausage browns, 5 to 10 minutes.
Discard all but 2 tablespoons of fat from pan.
Add garlic, onion, and cumin; stir until onion is limp, about 5 minutes.
Add shrimp, cilantro, and salsa; stir until hot, about 3 minutes.
Spoon over hot rice.
