Excellent basic jimbalaya recipe. Easy to add additional ingredients if you wish. In addition to the shrimp and ham I added pre-cooked skinless chicken thighs scallops and sweet italian sausage. For a bit more Cajun "kick" I also added Red Pepper Flakes Garlic herb spice and 1 tbsp of Emeril's "Bam!" spice. Wonderful! This is a keeper!
Fantastic! This was my first time making jambalaya and I loved it. As per some of the reviews it needed extra liquid for the rice but since I didn't have extra broth I just added water as needed (about one and a half cups). I spiced it up with half a habanero a little cayenne and some red pepper flakes. So easy to make and I only had to dirty one pot:)
I modified this recipe by using only 1 cup of rice added 1/2 c celery and 1/2 red pepper to onions & butter. Then I added cajun seasoning Lowery's seasoned salt fresh oregano fresh basil and a big splash of jalapeno sauce. My family thought it was a great recipe. I'll try it again.
My husband really enjoyed this and surprisingly my kids did too. I am not a fan of Cajun food but I ate it and it wasn't too spicy. I didn't have the ham on-hand so I used 1 lb. beef smoked sausage and I also added gumbo vegetables and some Cajun seasoning. Also I used brown rice and it was just as good. We will make this one again; thanks!
This was a "good recipe"..I cooked my rice first then added it in step 2 along with the shrimp.I did't use ham I used Kielbasa sliced. and added hot pepper flakes I calculated for 8 servings. It was Great!
Delicious. I used 25-to-a-pound shrimp. I couldn't spend all that time peeling them without making use of the shells! So I put the shrimp shells in the chicken stock and added one more cup of chicken stock and one cup of white wine then reduced it back down to the amount called-for in the recipe (then removed the shells of course!) I also cooked the roux to a golden brown before proceeding with the rest of the recipe. The recipe does not call for "trinity" (onions celery and green pepper) and no cajun seasoning - which I found interesting. So I served this recipe with a bottle of papaya hot sauce for people to pass around.
