ZATARAIN'S® Jambalaya Mix, Original

Creole jambalaya was born in New Orleans in the 18th century when Spanish settlers tried to re-create their beloved paella using Louisiana ingredients. Today it’s a local staple, common from music festivals to Mardi Gras parties to quiet weeknight meals. And there’s a reason why you’ll find boxes of Zatarain’s Jambalaya Mix in so many New Orleans pantries: It delivers classic jambalaya flavor and is incredibly easy to prepare. Just add sausage, chicken, ham, seafood, veggies – whatever you’d like to make it a meal.

“This is a great product, but I enhance it a bit with a few additions. Instead of water I use prepared seafood stock. I add 1/2 can of no-salt diced tomatoes, 1/2 chopped celery stalk, 1/4 chopped bell pepper, 1/4 chopped sweet onion, and three cloves crushed garlic. I also brown and drain 1/2 lb Andouille and add that when the rice gets to a boil. Five minutes before the rice is done I add 1/2 lb peeled and deveined shrimp. A salad and a little French bread and you have a quick, filling and easy meal. ”
