New Orleans-Style Jambalaya
This hearty Creole jambalaya is smoky, aromatic, and just a little bit spicy. Rendered fat from a combination of andouille sausage, bacon, and smoked sausage serves as the base, and the dish keeps building from there. Take the time to cook each element of the jambalaya to add browned, caramelized flavor. Make sure to save the shells when peeling and deveining the shrimp, as they'll be used for a homemade shrimp stock that goes in towards the end.
