Jambalaya is rice and meat with a few veggies added in for flavor. Use whatever you like but keep the quantities similar. Spices are added for your taste. Add or delete what you want just make it taste good.

Why not add prawns? I thought Jambalaya had shrimp too? I did not notice any herbs either. This must be your favorite method. Maybe it is similar to the college days of Sheppards Pie. Throw it all in, heat and eat:)

Yikes, I need to slow down on posting. I might hit 1k too quickly:)

This is the spices I use in correct amounts. I kinda left it bland above and added the note to use what you prefer for your taste. This is a mixture I have had no complaints about. I even made this up at a gathering with several northerners involved in Pa one year and nobody complained.

1 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoons garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon black pepper
1/2 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 tablespoon Chinese red pepper
1 tablespoon dried leaf oregano
1/4 tablespoon dried thyme
1/2 tablespoon dried basil
1/2 tablespoon parsley
1/2 tablespoon lime zest

if its meat it will work. Its a choice for you to make lol add what you like.

Now this sounds much better. Great blend of foods, spices and herbs. I bet it's a hit.
