Reviewed Gulf Shrimp Jambalaya
"Have to agree with the others who say to ignore the people saying this recipe is not authentic. I too have NEVER heard of making a roux for jambalaya and every jambalaya I have ever eaten, including in Louisiana, had the rice cooked as part of the dish. I even tried to specifically find recipes without rice and it is extremely difficult, the only one I found said you can make it without rice to shorten the cooking time but "is not recommended if you have Cajun or Creole friends coming over for dinner" - in others words, if you want to be authentic you MUST include the rice in the dish.
I am pretty sure dideraux and others are referring to gumbo. So if you're looking for a good jambalaya recipe, go ahead and try this one out or any others you find where the rice is cooked as part of the dish.
