This week I am making a jambalaya based off of one of my Cajun recipe playing cards (yes, there are Cajun recipe playing cards).
- 16oz shrimp
- 2 cans oysters (drained)
- 1 large can of whole clams (drained – reserve half)
- 1 1/2 bell pepper, chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 cup tomato paste
- 1 tspn Old Bay Seasoning
- 1 tspn Tony Cashere’s More Spice Seasoning
- 3-4 cups of cooked rice
In heavy lidded pot or Dutch oven, melt butter. Add garlic, onion, peppers. Sautee for a few minutes. Add tomato paste, the reserved clam juice. Stir and simmer on lowest setting for 1 hr (with lid). Add seafood and spices, simmer for 20min (with lid). Add rice, stir together.
The recipe seems more Creole than Cajun to me. Its a bit different than what I am used to =o
