First off, when you peel your shrimp save the shells and boil them in about 5 to 8 cups of water. Bring to Boil and simmer for about 5 minutes then run through a strainer, reserving the water. Use this water in the soup and you won't believe the difference. I have been making a similar version to this soup for about 20 years. However, this one takes the cake! Other than the boiled shrimp shells I also left out the chicken and Ham. I doubled the shrimp to 2lbs and also added about 1.5lbs of white fish filets that I'd cut into bite sized pieces. Doesn't matter what kind of fish you use (just has to be white). I bought whatever was on sale at the fish market. Perfection in a bowl! I also made the jalepeno cornbread recipe that I found on this side. Crumble that into your bowl and it's amazing. WONDERFUL recipe! This is a must try for everyone. I guarantee it will make it into your personal recipe book as it has mine.


This is one of the best jambalaya recipes I've made. The spices used and the chopped jalapenos give it a wonderful flavor & just the right amount of heat. I've made it with only the chicken and shrimp (leaving out the ham & sausage), which is my favorite. This is now a family favorite.


Very good, pretty easy to make, lots of improvising opportunities. Needs more rice, though, to thicken the mixture.
