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.

One of our favourites

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.

chris - Nov 08, 2018


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

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!
