It’s a big help to have mixes like this when I need to “cheat” to get supper on the table. But hey, when you’re busy, you do what you need to do. Fortunately, these are a great alternative to cooking from scratch.
Sausage Jambalaya Ingredients
Louisiana Fish Fry Jambalaya Mix
1 1/2 pounds chicken, pork, or sausage (I used smoked sausage)
2 1/4 cups water
The packet instructions recommend cooking your meat first, so I browned the sausage in a pan first. Then I followed the rest of the packet instructions.
This is another easy meal to prepare and goes well with a fresh green salad or vegetable. This is what we call a “brown” jambalaya. Even though this was very tasty, it came in second place behind the shrimp creole. Next time, I will try adding chicken to it.
I would recommend both mixes to families who like Creole and Cajun cooking. They are very well seasoned, easy to prepare, and reflect well upon the cooking culture here.
Now, so inspired, I would like to offer a little contest. If you are so inclined, please visit the above link to the Louisiana Fish Fry web site, take a look at all the mixes, and pick one that you would like me to cook next and blog about. It does NOT have to be an entree`.
Each suggestion will go into a random drawing, and I will gladly cook the winning submission next week!
