One Pan Jambalaya Recipe
This One Pan Jambalaya recipe from Chelsea’s Messy Apron is loaded with authentic flavour, you won’t believe it was made on a sheet pan. The balance of protein, vegetables, and rice makes this recipe very filling, perfect for larger appetites.
To make, you’ll add ingredients to the sheet pan in stages, starting with the cut veggies and sausage. This allows everything to cook together in the same pan. Shrimp is added to the pan in the second stage, followed by the rice and seasoning.
Nutrition Tip: I used leftover plain rice to cut down on sodium, rather than the pre-packaged kind as the recipe suggests. This recipe has enough flavour that I didn’t even notice this swap!
What you’ll need:
3 sweet bell peppers
1 medium yellow onion
13 ounces skinless smoked sausage
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 and 1/2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning,
8 ounces small or medium shrimp (peeled and deveined OR just deveined)
1/2 teaspoon paprika
11/2 cups cherry tomatoes
Salt and pepper, to taste
2/3 cup sliced green onions
fresh parsley, 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
2 cups cooked rice
Makes 6 servings
Ready in 40 minutes
