Shrimp Jambalaya

The Creole Crab Burgers and fresh remoulade were absolutely fantastic last night. Tonight, it's going to be shrimp Jambalaya. I'm going to invite some friends over, and throw together a huge pot of this stuff. Now that cold weather has returned to Chicago, it's time again to turn up the heat with hearty food like this.

  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped bell pepper

  • 1 cup finely chopped green onion and parsley

  • 4 cloves fresh garlic minced
