1. What is Jambalaya?
One of my favorite dishes from Southern Louisiana is the 2nd Line classic: Jambalaya. Not only do I love all the spice that the dish packs, but I love how easy it is to make. Once you've got the ingredients, you can produce the dish in under two hours time, which isn't bad considering it can be made in huge batches to feed a crowd. The most unusual ingredient in the dish is a type of ham widely found in the bayou, known as Tasso. While it's hard to find locally, it's easy to order online, and adds a huge amount to the dish.
2. Shrimp Jambalaya
Paella. Jambalaya. Arroz con Pollo. what do these dishes have in common? A lot, actually. All are made by sauteing some aromatics like onions and garlic. Adding some sausage or other flavoring (like saffron), rice, and stock, and simmering with a protein (seafood or chicken or a combination). About 20 minutes later dinner is served!
