I think it is safe to say you are a busy person. Is that true? I know I am even more in the next few weeks when I get back into the swing of working in an office again and stopping to work out on the way home.
With that being said recipes like this 20-minute Jambalaya are amazing! Now I am not from the south, I do not cook traditional Jambalaya but I know what I like and what tastes good and this is quick, yummy and spicy! In my book that makes it good!
You will need: (For two servings)
¾ cup Minute Rice
¾ cup chicken broth- your preference
½ to 1 full link of cooked Kielbasa Sausage- your brand preference I like what is on sale
8 shrimp- cleaned, peeled and tails removed
½ cup frozen corn or 1 ear of fresh corn removed from the cob
¼ cup chopped red bell pepper
¼ cup chopped onion
2 tbs olive oil
1 ¼ tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp black pepper
½ tsp cayenne (less if you don’t like spice… or omit)
½ tsp dried oregano
½ tsp dried thyme
Start by boiling the chicken broth for the rice. Let the broth come to a boil, add the rice, place the lid on and set aside.
Once you add the rice to the broth to steam heat a skillet over medium to heat and add 2 tbs oil to the pan.
Let cook for 1-2 minutes.
While the mix cooks slice the sausage and chop the shrimp.
While the mixture finishes cooking, scoop the rice into the bottom of a bowl. Top with the sausage, shrimp, veggie mix and serve.
Perfect for a date night or any other night really.
I hope you have a fabulous Valentine's Day, Nico and I are going to be doubling with our friends to go to dinner and then see Die Hard in IMAX. Yes it was a joint decision as a couple to see it. I love the Die Hard movies!
