Jambalaya

This rice based dish is an American version of the famous Spanish paella. Jambalaya is a Louisiana Creole dish of Spanish and French influence. It is usually a combination of meat, vegetables, seafood and rice. The jambalaya recipe I have here uses cured meat such as salami and Chinese sausage and I’m sure it is very easy to cook, just like cooking fried rice. I don’t if this dish is related in anyway to the song “Jambalaya (On The Bayou)”, maybe it’s up to you to find out. ūüėČ “So….goodbye Joe, gotta go me oh my oh!”
