Jambalaya is said to be an offspring of a Spanish dish, Paella. Its popularity rose thanks to public gatherings like church fairs and festivals. Naturally, a festival as important as Mardi Gras would see jambalaya being consumed in massive quantities by New Orleans natives and out-of-towners alike. The traditional Creole version (also sometimes called "red jambalaya") starts with a trinity of celery, peppers, and onions. Then meat such as chicken or sausage is added, followed by vegetables like tomatoes and seafood such as shrimp or crab.
We're getting into the Mardi Gras spirit this week with Universal's Jambalaya Recipe shared by Denielle Ricci , Associate Editor of Discover Universal Blog.
