Yankee Jambalaya

Full nutritional info here:
Recipe: Yankee Jambalaya | Low Carb Kitty!


5 net carbs per serving, four servings

Ingredients:

Bacon, 3 strips, cut into small pieces (aka lardons!)
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp butter
1/2 of an onion, chopped (I used a spring onion I used from my CSA box)
Garlic, 3 – 4 cloves
Bell pepper (I chose yellow), chopped into small pieces
Chicken broth, one cup
Tomato paste, 2 tbsp
12 shrimp, cut in half (mine were frozen and pre cooked/shelled)
3 sausages, cut into slices
Tony Cachere’s original creole seasoning
Smoked paprika red pepper

Directions:
1. In low-medium heat pan, render down the lardons to release all that yummy bacon fat
2. Add in the water, butter and onions – sautee/simmer until onions become transparenty
–raise to medium high heat–
3. Dump in garlic, bell pepper, broth, and tomato paste and let meld, few dashes of the creole seasoning & smoked paprika (be light handed if you don’t like it too spicy)
4. Add in the shrimp and sausage – let it all simmer for about ten minutes – spice to taste with more creole seasoning (and more smoked paprika if you want more of a kick)

DO NOT SALT, there is plenty of salt in the creole seasoning.

Yum, that sounds good and not difficult to make!

I'll use my lardons from my home-cured, home-smoked bacon. Oh man so good.

I didn't use the most 'optimal' sausage IMHO I buy sausages in bulk from costco, then thaw a pack a week. I used a sun dried tomato / provolone sausage, but I think it worked because the cheese melted into the sauce and thickened it up

SOOOO easy to make! I'm new to cooking (I started cooking all my meals the moment I went low carb) and I prefer 'one pot cooking'. I lack a dishwasher so the less dishes I have to clean, the better!!

I made this tonight for dinner and it was really good. I served it with some cauli rice. My son has been missing jambalaya and was very happy! Thank you.
