Did a lot of research on jambalaya and reviewed a number of recipes and came up with the following. I like white fish and, while not traditional, added chunks of cod fillet to this dish. You want to add the shrimp and fish to the dish with about 10 minutes to go so it does not overcook. Cook uncovered if it is soupy and covered if it is not during these last 10 minutes. Finally, try to find andouille sausage if possible. It makes all the difference.

A jambalaya for the low-carb and paleo crowd. It's rice free, with extra veggies to make up the volume. Just as delicious and flavorful as traditional jambalaya, without the insulin spike!

While true jambalaya is really more of a thicker rice stew than a soup, it's one of those dishes that more stock can be added to easily make it into a soup recipe. Serve garnished with green onion.

Impress your family and friends when you serve this classic and flavorful Creole dish and best of all, it's easily made in the oven. I brought a huge roaster pan full to a neighborhood fish fry and needless to say, there were no leftovers. Follow the link for the Creole Seasoning Blend, and make your very own seasoning!

I like to avoid frozen shrimp when I can so I am using dry cured ham instead to this delicious jambalaya! Toss the chicken, sausage, ham, vegetables, and seasonings in the slow cooker and forget about it until dinner time.
