Express Shrimp & Sausage Jambalaya

Your rating: None Average: 3.3 (36 votes)

You don't have to sacrifice the traditional smoky punch of this Cajun favorite just because you're short on time. All you need is some purchased sausage and quick-cooking brown rice to create a rich, satisfying dinner on any weeknight. Have some sliced berries for dessert to cool off your palate!



READER'S COMMENT:
"I will be honest-- I haven't made this recipe... but I am unlikely to do so. Other than those contained in the andouille sausage (provided that you *use* andouille and not the low-fat kielbasa listed as an alternative), there is no spice...

The andouille is not optional!

This was really easy to make - we had left overs for a week and my husband ate every last scrap! However, it would be a lot more like a traditional jambalaya with the addition of perhaps some sort of diced tomatoes and some cajun spices...however don't short sell the use of the andouille - it really does provide flavor for the ENTIRE dish!

Quick, easy, good

This is not jambalaya. I was born and raised in New Orleans. Just because you add andouille or smoked sausage and shrimp, doesn't make it jambalaya!

Yes, the only spices are in the andouille sausage (provided you use it). Do get creative and add some spices to it. Otherwise it's blend. But it's a fast decently tasty meal.

Family Favorite!

The recipe may sound simple, but it has a lot of flavor. Try it!

Great easy recipe, as written. I do chop my own veggies instead of using a frozen mix though.

Better than Take-Out

I will keep these ingredients on hand so I'm never again tempted to stop for fattening unhealthy take-out. I can make this quicker than the pizza guy can deliver.

Quik, delicious, handy
