Empty out your freezer of all the frozen seafood you been storing and get ready because today on Cooking With Cajun Radio, we are cooking a Seafood Jambalaya!!!

Jambalaya, a Cajun/Creole dish, is perhaps the most versatile main dish that Louisiana has to offer. Jambalaya may be made with beef, pork, chicken, duck, shrimp, oysters, crayfish, sausage, or any combination. Some of the more standard additions are green pepper, cayenne pepper, parsley celery, and onions. Generally, the vegetables are sauteed and meat(s) cooked, then broth or water,seasonings, and uncooked rice are added.
