Place ham, sausages, and onions in a 3-quart Dutch oven. Cover and cook over medium heat until onions are soft. Add the rice and stir well.
Add the green onions, paprika, parsley, thyme, garlic, green peppers, salt, bay leaf, shrimp, and water.
Raise heat to high and bring to a boil.

Cover the pot tightly and let cook slowly for 35 minutes or until the rice is tender. Fluff with a fork and mix well before serving.
