Dinner

It’s been a long time since we’ve had Jambalaya – either at home or out – and this recipe avoids the “stuck to the bottom” problem a lot of jambalaya suffers from, by cooking in the oven.

We dropped the chicken and we made a half batch, which makes four serves. We put the shrimp in only for the final 15 minute rest and they were perfectly cooked.

  • 1 lb of shrimp is $6.99,  or $1.75 per serve
  • We can now get real pork andouille sausage from our local Ralph’s supermarket for $6.99 or $1.75 per serve
  • Canned fire roasted tomatoes cost $1.69 or 43c per serve
  • Bell pepper was $1.00 or 25c per serve
  • Scallions, onion, garlic  and herbs adds 35c per serve
  • Tomato paste adds 12c per serve
  • Rice adds 33c per serve.

A satisfying, meal with perfectly cooked shrimp for $4.98 per serve.
