Shrimp, Clam and Oyster Jambalaya [Cajun Monday]

This week I am making a jambalaya based off of one of my Cajun recipe playing cards (yes, there are Cajun recipe playing cards).

Jambalaya

Seafood Jambalaya

The List:

  • 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

The Way:

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
