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.

Louise - Jul 18, 2019

This was the 1st dish I’ve made from simply cook and was quite impressed. I was expecting a spicy dish but this was very mild, hubby added hot sauce to his but went back for seconds. Used chicken, prawns and chorizo. Would make again minus the peppers as my daughter couldn’t eat it even after picking them out so would substitute something else next time.

Rebecca - Jul 10, 2019

The flavours in this was awesome!! We used both chicken & prawns in this dish. I also added a red pepper as we don’t enjoy green peppers that much, plus we wanted to add a bit more colour as all the veggies listed were white or green. I also decided to marinaded the chopped chicken & prawns in a food bag in the fridge for approximately 3 hours & another 10 minutes at room temperature before cooking. It really was a gorgeous dinner & was very moreish. We look forward to having this again soon. A&B
