Extremely easy recipe - flavorful and colorful! What a gret dish to satisfy your draving for Jambalaya when you don't have all day to slave - why would you? This recipe rocks! I used a little extra andouille and blackening spice in place of the shrimp boil seasoning. DD and I ate it for dinner and DH can't wait to get home to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow!! You just have to try this one! ;)
I saw this recipe and decided to do some research on cajuns at wikpedia. Used your recipe without the ham shrimp seasoning. Added cajun spice and brown sugar etc as that is true cajun. Came out excellent. Thanx for the post.
I made this recipe and didn't tweek it at all. I should have added more tomato sauce and also added craw fish to the mix. For an authenic Jambalaya recipe you need craw fish. It was tasty but it calls for way too much rice. The rice soaked up what little sauce was in the mix. Next time I will cut the rice down and add more tomato sauce and water and of course the craw fish. Not a bad taste, just not what I was expecting it to taste like. Melody A.
