    Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya

    If you are into full flavour, hearty, spicy, one pot, no fuss, minimal-dishes-to-wash meals. This is the one recipe you have to try making. The aromatic vegetables, herbs, and spices adds so much depth to the dish. And quite honestly, it’s almost impossible to screw up a meal with fresh shrimps, sausages, and bacon added to it.

    The rice soaked up all the goodness, and turned out absolutely delish! This is probably one of those dish to enjoy on a cool rainy day, or cold winter night! I’d most definitely warm you up from the inside out, very comforting. This Creole dish is definitely a winner!

    Thank you for participating! The giveaway has ended!
