Describe Jambalaya

Jambalaya is one of Louisiana’s most well-known foods worldwide. The word “mix” or “jumble” refers to the mixture of ingredients in this dish. In other words, it’s a fantastic way to be inspired and use up extra leftovers in your fridge! Build your meal upon a base of premium rice and meats or seafood.

Rice: In contrast to gumbo, jambalaya is mixed into the cooking pot, soaking up every flavor! Like our fluffy white rice, we advise long grain rice.

Surf and/or Turf: Get your protein fix by including meat, seafood, or both, as in this crab and sausage jambalaya. It’s not unexpected that these are frequently seen in the pot because Cajun cookery is known for being the food of those who depend on the land:

Meat: andouille sausage, chicken, and alligator.

Seafood: crawfish, shrimp, fish, oysters.

Vegetables: celery, bell peppers, and onions

Seasoning: cajun, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper.

Herbs: basil and bay leaves, rosemary, thyme, parsley, and others
