Jambalaya - The Revenge

Although I've already posted this dish it's SO good it deserves a second posting. Also, being Mother's Day tomorrow hubby wanted to cook for me and this is one of the few dishes that he can cook (which didn't originate in a can).

We substituted chicken for prawns (as we didn't have any).

  • 2 tbp oil

  • 2 chorizo sausages

  • 2 thick English pork sausages

  • 225g cooked prawns

  • 4 garlic cloves

  • 1 onion

  • 1 red pepper

  • 2 celery sticks

  • chilli powder

  • paprika

  • 225g basmati rice

  • 300 ml chicken stock

  • 400 ml passata (or finely diced tomatoes)

  • 4 spring onions

  • thyme

  • bay leaves

  • parsley

  1. Heat the oil in large frying pan, or better, a paella pan. Fry the thickly chopped chorizo and pork sausages until golden then set aside.

  2. Fry the garlic, onions, thickly sliced pepper & celery, in the pan for 2 minutes

  3. Add the chilli powder and paprika to taste (preferably hot) and cook for 1 minute.

  4. Add back the sausages then add the rice, thyme, bay leaves, passata, chicken stock, salt & pepper. Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer gently for 20 minutes. Use foil to cover if you don't have a big enough lid. Stir 2 or 3 times during the simmer.

  5. Ensure the rice is cooked through, add a little more stock if needed.

  6. Uncover, sprinkle over the prawns and chopped parsley, & recover for 5 minutes.

  7. Serve with spring onions and extra parsley, and some good crusty bread.

  8. Optional - add chicken as well as the sausages.

yum! that's one tasty looking dish and you've enlightened me on yet another use for chorizo sausages. i bought some over the weekend and was struggling to think of how to cook them other than pan frying them. i think a jambalaya will be in order for next time!

Hi Serenity later, I love chorizo too. Any dish that has this ingredient has to be a winner
