Gluten Free Shrimp & Sausage Jambalaya Stir-Fry

The last time I made this was several year ago before I knew I had to eat gluten free. I had stumbled across a Zataran’s Jambalaya Rice mix, and rather than just adding in sausage as suggested, I wanted to make a stir-fry with the rice as more of a side. So I grabbed a bunch of ingredients, tried it out, and loved it! After I had to eat gluten free however, several of the ingredients looked iffy to me so I just never made it again. Until now! I was super excited to see a “gluten free”  label on the Zataran’s rice, and I’ve since found a gf balsalmic vinegrette as well. So now I can share this wonderful dish with y’all. 🙂

  • It is really interesting how differently "jambalaya" is interpreted all over the nation. As a resident of Louisiana, I have seen allll different kinds. This looks the most like jambalaya to me but I saw some at a wedding this weekend that  was more of a beef with gravy and mushrooms lookin' mix. Interesting! 🙂

  • That's funny! I've never lived in the south, but I would have never thought of beef, gravy, & mushrooms as jambalaya either 😛

  • This sounds delicious! I may have to try it or make it for my in-laws! I felt terrible on Saturday because they came over for dinner and I made an Asian dish (we ate a lot of soy sauce when Jesse lived at home) but I didn't realize that some brands of soy sauce have wheat! Luckily my sister-in-law knew it was a brand she couldn't have and they didn't eat it, but I felt terrible.

  •  O that stinks! It can be really hard to keep track of all the brands and products that do or don't have gluten! I love this recpe because its so easy to make and super flavorful… definitely let me know how it goes if you try it! 🙂
