Grilling Fool: HA! "remove pepperoni and enjoy..."

Andy M: Thanks - I guess I'll do more research about baking the gumbo? I read in another thread that jambalaya is supposed to be cooked WITH the rice, not served OVER rice, as I had originally thought...

I might try mixing the two recipes... Thanks, both of you!

Try the Prudhomme recipe for chiocken and tasso jambalaya. It's really good. I serve it with creole sauce to top the jambalaya.

First off, I'm hungry, so everything sounds so good... kind of a problem right now!

I would like to add the shrimp & tilapia to the Chef Paul recipe, but am not sure about baking the seafood for 40 minutes (overcooking) - any ideas on that? Maybe cooking separately with spices and adding at the end?

You could mix in the fish with 5-10 minutes of cooking time left.

after baking for 40 minutes, your shrimp would be rubber, and the tilapia would be mush.
