Reviews for Shrimp Jambalaya
"I made this tonight for our "Fat Tuesday" dinner and it was great. I made it exactly as the recipe was printed. I did add some more juice from the stewed tomatoes towards the end so it was a little saucier. The spice was perfect for us as we don't like really spicy dishes so add more hot sauce if you like things spicy! Great dish and will make again."
"A very tasty recipe. I have doubled the recipe and made it for company and received many compliments on it."
