Cook's Tips

If a thicker, 'saucier' jambalaya is desired, stir in 1/4 cup instant mashed potato flakes just before adding the shrimp and sausage. To make 1 tablespoon salt-free Cajun seasoning, combine 3/4 tsp paprika, 3/4 tsp ground black pepper, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/8 to 1/4 tsp ground red pepper, 1/4 tsp dried thyme, 1/4 tsp dried oregano, 1/4 tsp onion powder and a dash of dried mustard.
