After sifting through many Jambalaya recipes and researching traditional Jambalaya methods I came up with this recipe. It is moderately spicy with good flavour and a texture that is not too gummy or too soupy. You can use a store bought spice mix but I highly recommend mixing up your own for the fullest flavour. Leaving the shells of the shrimp intact keeps them tender while the rice is cooking...just remember to warn your diners before they start eating!
