So last week I came from Nairobi feeling like I did not have much to post on. I had no idea what to cook or what to try. I looked into my freezer in confusion!!! When I saw the packet of cocktail prawns I remembered an article in Januray’s GoodFood and another in February’s issue.
In the January’s issue they had a chicken and chorizo jambalaya and in February’s they had a lemony prawn and chorizo rice pot. I decided to marry the two and see how it came out. The end product reminded me a lot of the Spanish Paella and after doing some research I discovered that the jambalaya is a Caribbean dish that has its roots in Spanish and French cuisine so that explains the similarities. I made mine with way too much chilli so it was a bit hard to eat but I still enjoyed the flavours.
The best thing about this dish is that it’s a one pot meal; you do not need to make anything else on the side as the dish is complete by its self. HAPPY COOKING!!!
