This was excellent. I had some shrimp defrosted for dinner and didn't know what to make and I came across this recipe. Had some linguica sausage that I didn't know what to do with either so this was perfect. My family loved it! Only thing I did different was not adding thyme, added some extra creole sesoning and extra broth. Also, my suggestion would be to use medium grain rice because long grain took longer to cook (why I had to add more broth). Definitely a keeper and certainly easy enough to make weeknight.
Many Cajun and Creole dishes are seasoned with the so-called holy trinity--bell pepper, onion, and celery. This Creole-style jambalaya has lots of tomato in it.
