jambalaya-2Welcome to this week’s Publix Super Meals. Each week I am going to share a recipe to help you take the Publix Super Deals and turn them into Publix Super Meals!

With the price of smoked sausage being only $1.50 after coupon in the new Publix ad, I knew that I wanted to do something with it. We have had so much rain I didn't want to chance planning a grilled recipe. I decided to go with one of my favorite meals that I can put together lickity split - Shrimp & Sausage Jambalaya.

This is one of those recipes that anyone can make. It's one of those one pan wonders that come together with almost no effort. This recipe is very versatile. Some times I do chicken and sausage. Other times I might do chicken and shrimp. This time, I had some Hillshire Farms smoked sausage in my fridge and some Publix shrimp in my freezer so that's what I went with.

You can also adjust the heat as needed. My boys don't care for this dish so I set some sausage aside for them and was able to kick this up a bit. My husband likes it spicy so I didn't hold back. I think he was sweating when he finished eating. Don't worry, my recipe below is fairly tame and even suitable for those with a sensitive palate.

    This is one of my regular go to meals. The only difference is I make it in the rice cooker. I use Eckrich sausage, no shrimp because the DH is picky. I throw everything in the rice cooker. No need to precook anything as it all ends up awesome.

    It’s one of our go to meals as well. I use the Zatarin’s rice mixes for ours and they’re on sale this week too!!

    I am so thankful for your posting. I am printing it out and making it fresh instead of out of a box. Thanks a million!!! I hope you post good recipes often.

    Hey Michelle! Two things, one of your grocery lists says “quarter pound of shrimp” but in 2013, you have said here 1/2 pound. Also, do you cook the shrimp first? I’m not a very good cook & I take things literally (so sometimes I have a hard time following you – my own fault, not yours!!) because you are so experienced!! You don’t always spell it out for the not as bright ones like me:). I’m googling how to cook shrimp but no one has a straight forward answer (peel before or after!). Thank you for helping me branch out of the rut!!
