30 Minute Jambalaya


OK so unfortunately I didn’t take precise measurements because this was another one of my “make-up-as-you-go” meals but I’m sharing the ingredient list and estimates below! It was super delish and will be back on the menu at home ASAP.

What I Used:

  • 12 whole peeled shrimp

  • 1 package (4 sausages) of Wellshire Farm Turkey Andouille Sausage cut into slices

  • 2 diced yellow squash

  • 1 cup Chicken Stock

  • 1 cup White Wine

  • 1/2 cup crushed tomatoes

  • 1 lemon

  • 2 cloves crushed garlic

  • 1 Tbsp crushed dried Oregano

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

  • salt to taste

  • 1 bag (about a cup cooked) of Trader Joe’s Frozen White Rice

How To:

  1. In a large skillet sautéed the squash and garlic and a little salt over medium/high heat in olive oil until garlic is starting to golden and squash is soft. While this is happening let the shrimp marinate in 1/2 the lemons worth of juice.

  2. Toss in the sausage (the ones I bought were already cooked) and let them brown.

  3. Next add in the shrimp, cooking for a minute or two on each side until pink

  4. Add the white wine, crushed tomatoes, & chicken stock to deglaze the pan scraping all the edges.

  5. Finally add the paprika & oregano.

  6. Cover and turn down the heat and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes for the flavors to meld.

  7. If you are serving right away, while simmering add the frozen rice and let it absorb into the sauce for a few minutes. If you need more liquid add more stock.

  8. Finish off with a squeeze of juice from the other half of the lemon.

  9. Serve it up with greens and enjoy!

PS you could also omit the rice leaving it a bit more soup like and serve it up with crusty french bread and butter!
