Tonight was my first attempt at jambalaya. I used chicken thighs, smoked sausage and shrimp for my protein.
I read several recipes and made a hybrid version containing parts out of 3-4 recipes.
I found recipes using tomato products and others not using tomatoes. So I kinda hedged my bet and used about 2 Tablespoons of tomato paste.
I wasn't sure how much to caramelized my onion, bell pepper, and celery mixture. I decided to saute the trinity pretty dark.
Now to figure out how to reduce my recipe. The wife and I ate all we wanted and I have enough leftovers for another meal.
Overall it tasted pretty good.
