Yep looks good but like was said earlier it is Creole dish there. Actually if you want a little more history about jambalaya I can give it to you. Actually a traditional jambalaya is a four meat dish or seafood. Momma would cook four nights then put the left overs together on the Friday night warm it all up and serve over rice. Just a little more Cajun cooking history. And if anyone would like to know how to cook jambalaya give me a shout I can help. Most of us today use two to three meats.

+1 here - I miss the rural Louisiana cuisine but haven't tried my hand at making it myself where we currently live.

Maybe I'll get inspired and try my hand at making some Tasso some time this year.
Plenty of " crawdads" in the buckeye state...

These are Canadian Bacon's words as he began this thread on Jambalaya...

"Yesterday was cold,wet and freezing rain....time for me to try my hand at Jambalaya...FIRST TIME.

The Man's Cookin' knows No Boundaries! As with All of us here, there is Always a "First Time." Shocked Laughing Laughing

Ethnically , Every Family and their Respective Region have the
"Original" or "Authentic" recipe for one dish or another.

Does "Brunswick Stew" ring a familiar note? Laughing

C.B.'s rendition of Jambalaya ,I Suppose, is a creation of
a recipe already worthy of merit and a handful of his own creativity(And quite probably what he had left over from a three month furlough off from pushin' dirt!Laughing )

So for Me , I would not tell the man how to cook and what
recipe is authentic or original.

Nope...I would applaud What the man cooks and all of what he shares with all of us here on the Smoke Ring Forums. Cool

Jus' Sayin' ,Eh? Wink

Best Regards,

Tony Wink

Bugs you can keep the frogs Laughing Laughing ....I have had frogs legs and they just did not do it for me......
as for the mudbugs.....that's a different story....I can get them here but they are frozen when they do get them.....
I was going to do a country boil a couple years back and when my friends heard that there would be crawdads in the mix I had
to cancel the the crawdads and substitute more shrimp and other goodies......or I would have been eating alone. Laughing Laughing

City Slickers ruined everything Laughing Laughing Laughing

Yeah, stinkin' city boys Laughing Laughing . I live in what is now considered the 'suburbs'. 20 years ago it was much more rural (my address was on 'Rural Route #2').

Ya don't like Frog legs? Have you ever had them beer-battered and deep fried? Mmmm...Just thinking about them is making me hungry Laughing

If you want good bugs, they must be live. The frozen ones are usually from China and they don't have that good, intense flavor of the ones from Louisiana. They ain't cheap if they have to be shipped (overnight), but well worth it IMO. About 5 years ago I had a boil planned (50 lbs) and couldn't find ANY locally, so I had to get them overnighted from LA and IIRC they were $6/lb (I normally pay $2-$3/lb).

They taste like a cross between fish and chicken. Kinda like a swimming chicken Laughing . Or a bird that's been in a salty brine a little too long. Good stuff IMO. When the market has them, I get 10lb boxes of frozen legs for $20-$22. Thawed, lightly coated in seasoned flour, beer battered, and fried for 3-4 minutes is awesomely goodly! Mmmmmmm...I need to run to the store to see if they have any. Getting really hungry right now Laughing

Rick, the bottom line is you whipped up one hell of a CoonA$$ dish Brother. Being born and raised in Louisiana and forced to transplant to Texas I will argue that all day long. Once again Nicely done my Man. Wink Very Happy
