So I am going to gush for a moment, because this right here is just so good. I have wanted to have a great jambalaya recipe for like ev-ah, and this my friends is it. Good grief finally – I cannot tell you how many times I have made this, working and tweaking and tweaking some more, for years. I’ll usually give up on a recipe after a try or two, but sometimes I hang in there and keep at it. Because this…

Originally, I used crab because I had seen that in another recipe somewheres. But crab was just too overpowering. Then I moved on to mussels, which tasted alright but made this very hard to eat. Don’t put mussels in rice dishes. Just don’t do it.

But then I tried shrimp. And then I added cod. And there it was.

This recipe is case in point that sometimes, you just gotta plug away at a it and get it just right. I am over-the-moon happy with this one here. Give it a try and let it become a favorite of yours too.
