    Swamp Mafia! I need your help!!!

    Hey there all knowing and super studly Swamp Mafia. How's it going?



    I need a recipe for Jambalaya! I usually make it with Zattarans, but I want to try it from scratch this time.

    It will have shrimp and sausage, that much I know.


    Thanks
    Ryan (the swamp Mafia's biggest fan)

    YOu suck up. You are going to get a recipe that is going to burn your ass out.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    It has too be female friendly as well. I love the heat, but she can't handle as much as I can.

    I have yet to meet a female that can eat hot spicy foods.


    Last time I made Jambalaya, my wife left the house in tears. She said the peppers and spices linguering around the house were bothering her.

    No, our little ol' palates are far too delicate for anything beyond a mere few grains of black pepper. It's a chromosomal thing, you know.

    I've met and cooked for men who have complained about there being too much heat in something I've found to be only mildly spicy.

    Not an original, but one of the best I've had:

    Credit John Berthelot of Gonzales, LA.

    3 lbs. Cubed Pork(1/2 inch cubes)
    4 Celery Stalks – Chopped fine
    3 lbs. Smoked Sausage (I substitute Andouille Sausage for flavor)
    1/2 Bell Pepper – Chopped fine
    3 lbs. Boneless Chicken
    5 Teaspoons Black Pepper
    ½ cup of cooking oil
    3 Teaspoons Louisiana Hot Sauce
    2 Teaspoons Granulated Garlic
    Salt to Taste –make sure it tastes salty
    1 Bunch of Green Onions ( chop and separate green tops from white bottoms)
    3 lbs of long grain rice
    12 Cups of Water
    3 lbs of Large Onions (chopped fine)

    Marinate the pork with salt, pepper, and garlic, and Lea and Perrins the morning you cook – This step is not necessary, but I like to do it.
    I marinate the chicken with LA Hot Sauce, salt, pepper & garlic.
    Fry cut up sausage in cooking oil until brown.
    Remove sausage.

    Fry pork and when pork begins to brown add chicken and cook to golden brown. Remove meat and add onions (NOT green onions)

    Cook until dark brown and add all meat.

    Add ½ cup of water and bell peppers, celery, and green onion bottoms only.

    Saute for 10-12 minutes or until caramelized.
    Add 12 cups of water and all seasoning. Remember: make it salty because the rice will absorb the salt.

    Add additional seasoning if you think it needs it – I usually do.
    Bring to a bubbling boil – cut off- YES cut off fire and let it sit for
    20-30 minutes. All excess oil will come to the top – skim off excess oil.

    Turn fire back on and bring to a boil again.

    Add rice and stir until mixture becomes thick making sure you have liquid remaining. Cover with a tight lid and let cook on a, low, low
    fire for 7 minutes. Uncover and use the back of spoon all around pot to bleed liquid down. Cover again-cook another 7 minutes.

    Turn over rice and add green onion tops – Don’t stir again. Cover and do this again in 7 minutes.

    When all liquid is gone turn as in fold your complete pot of jambalaya.
    Cover -7 more minutes- Should be cooked –I hope.
    Feeds 20 hungry people.

    That sounds delicious!

    I wouldn't dare give a recipe for a Swamp Mafia specialty, but when I make it I use andouille, shrimp (crawdads if I can get them), and chicken.

    Thanks for the recipe! The only downside is at most there may be 4 of us. May have to do a little math.

    If you dont have any "witnesses" try the Zattarans thing ,only susbstitute 1 can of petite diced tomatoes,for 1/2 cup water,it makes an amazing difference.Cools it down a tad but adds flavor and color.I have been "playing around" with the Zats and this has become a favorite for Daps and I,we were just discussing it an hour ago.Also by doing this you "Make it your own".

    edit: for 4 people I would use 2 boxes and 2 cans,plus one of those small (4oz?) cans of tomatoe sauce.The petite diced come in several flavors,I prefer the garlic and olive oil.

    I usually throw a can of Rotell tomatoes into the Zat mix. Tastes pretty good. I also use a spicy sausage.

    This reminds me, I need to break out the corn bread recipe.

    Note: Cajun food does not always mean HOT...cajun food is "full of life" we use lotsa spices...and almost always the Holy Trinity

    Mav cooks it perfectly....

    Thanks Guy!!!!




    and up here we call them crawdads!!! I use to actually fish for them when I was younger. And by fish I mean I'd drop an unbaited hook into the rocks on the bank and then pull 'em up.

    I do apologize - I was so upset by nsb's assertion that women can't handle spicy food that I lost my head for a moment. Crawfish.

    Keep in mind, though - I did defer to you guys for recipes for a specialty from your area. Can I have one more chance?
