Just made this Jambalaya. In fact my empty bowl is still beside me! I am not sure why more people didn't give it a five. I followed the recipe almost as is. The only change I made was omitting the ham, since we don't eat it. I just used a little extra sausage. Otherwise I made it just as Bubba advised. I was a little skeptical about if the uncooked amount of rice not being enough to fill up stew. But the ratio of rice to stew is perfect. Just like 'Nawlins! I used Aidell's cajun andouille sausage (grocery store), turkey bacon, and large gulf shrimp instead of salad shrimp. I suggest you McCormicks cajun seasoning with brown top, small bottle (Zatarain's is too salty for me) and use good rice like Uncle Ben's. I served with Haiwaiin sweet rolls to offset the spicy nature of jambalaya. Lastly, use extra shrimp b/c they are always the first to go!
