Shrimp Jambalaya THM-E

I love jambalaya. It’s a very easy meal and I love spicy food! This is a recipe that is no super spicy as it is written, but you can sprinkle in some cayenne to taste or kick up the amount of creole seasoning to spice it up if you like! I even like a squirt of sriracha in mine (but I leave it out if the recipe so it’s not too hot for the rest of the family)

I used chicken sausage (Johnsonville Cajun Chicken Sausage is my choice). But you can use turkey sausage as well for low fat THM-E meals. If you use traditional pork sausage, it will be a cross over meal.


2 cups brown rice

1 cup red beans

1 bay leaf

1T coconut or olive oil

Creole seasoning- 2+ tsp

Salt and pepper to taste

2 cans of crushed tomatoe2 pounds of shrimp

1 package cooked chicken sausage

1 onion

1 green pepper

1/2 t dry thyme

1 t dry oregano

1 T minced garlic


Prepare the rice with the bay leaf, and 1 tsp creole seasoning. Once cooked, discard the bay leaf. Prepare the beans in water with 1 tsp salt (or use canned beans). Mix the beans and rice, set aside

Sauté the shrimp with the onion, green pepper and garlic in the oil. Once the onion is soft, add the tomatoes, and seasonings. Slice the sausage and toss in there too. Let simmer 10-15 minutes

Serve the tomato, shrimp/sausage mixture on top of beans and rice! Enjoy!
