Head Chef Simon George’s Jambalaya Recipe

Wow your guests this autumn with Simon's mouth-watering jambalaya recipe.

____________________

Jambalaya has been a much-loved favourite for generations as it's filling and full of flavour. It is also very versatile, so it can be easily adapted to make use of whatever ingredients happen to be lying around. Head Chef Simon George's dish is perfect as a warming snack, or you can turn it into a delicious meal by adding either steak, chicken, seafood or roasted vegetables. Your choice! Our ingredients list below is for two people, so increase the quantities depending on how many people you're cooking for.

Two tbsp cajun spice
