Jambalaya4.4/5 (BASED ON 3116 reviews)
Jambalaya fun to say, fun to eat. It's originally a Caribbean Creole rice dish that has made it's way to Louisiana after being seasoned by both Spanish and French influence. It's said that when Spanish colonials tried to make paella without saffron, which was hard to get in America, they ended up creating Jambalaya. The chorizo in this dish brings some Latin attitude to this dish while the red wine and the unique oregano and basil salts in our specially blended Jambalaya Paste bring some French elegance. Our signature Cajun seasoning has been tweaked to perfection rounding off this dish as a true melting pot of flavors from around the world.

Our 30 minute recipe
Coat the chicken (and prawns if using) in the Cajun Seasoning.
Fry the chicken in a pan until cooked and golden, then remove and set aside. Repeat with the prawns.
Add the chorizo to the same pan and fry for 2 mins.
Add the Garlic Paste, onion, pepper and celery, and cook for 3-4 mins. Meanwhile, boil the kettle.
Add the rice, 400ml of boiling water and the Jambalaya Stock to the pan.
Stir, bring it to the boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and cover with a lid. Let it cook for 12-15 mins, adding more water after 10 mins, if needed.
Return the chicken (and prawns) to the pan, mix well and let it cook uncovered for 2 more mins.

Tasty, but too heavy on salt. Easy to double up on ingredients and then tasted better
Alex - Nov 13, 2018
Pretty good but feels like it's missing something. I'll make it again but with a bottle of Worcestershire sauce and tabasco sauce on standby.

Kathryn - Nov 08, 2018
Loved this dish! Perhaps I went all out but I used leftover chicken from a roast, prawns & chorizo- delicious! My only criticism would be that it is a little on the salty side but I think the amount of chorizo was the main problem. Will order again!
Mike - Nov 06, 2018
Very nice, but slightly too salty. Is chorizo the culprit
Alice - Nov 06, 2018
I used smoked tofu and prawns for this. Tasty.

Wonderful, I added a little more rice and water than the recipe for 2 said( I also added 4 chicken thighs, prawns and chorizo) , and squeezed a little bit of fresh lime on the finished dish- it was full of flavour and fed 3 of us!
