What is Jambalaya?
Jambalaya is an American, Louisiana-born, Creole, and Cajun white rice dish that draws influences from Spain, West Africa, and France. It mainly consists of pork and seafood such as andouille sausage, crayfish and shrimp, but also contains vegetables such as bell peppers, onions and celery.
In this version, we replace white rice with cauliflower rice! You can also replace the cauliflower rice with rice of your own choice.
How to make Keto Sheet Pan Jambalaya
Let’s collect these easy ingredients:
- Red peppers and green peppers
- Olive oil or avocado oil
- Kielbasa Sausage
- Cajun seasoning
- Cauliflower Rice
- cherry tomatoes
- Garlic powder
- Raw shrimp
- Lemon juice
- Green onions and parsley for garnish
We start by preheating the oven to 425. We will combine the sliced peppers, onions and sliced sausages in a large bowl. Drizzle these with oil, and sprinkle with salt and cajun seasoning.
Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 8 minutes. While the vegetables and sausages are roasting, prepare the prawns by seasoning the remaining spices. Remove the pan after 8 minutes, and add the cauliflower rice and cherry tomatoes. Place the shrimp on top.
Bake another 6-8 minutes or until prawns are cooked. Remove from the oven and serve with a squeeze of lemon, fresh parsley or chives.
Some Questions Answered
- Can you remove the prawns in the Jambalaya? Yes! Very. You can do all the sausages, and add another pound. Another option is to use chopped chicken breast.
- Can you use plain rice instead of cauliflower rice? Of course! You can even swap it for brown rice, or another grain of choice.
This dinner is one you can prepare or enjoy as leftovers the next day. In fact, it might even taste better!
- Keep: store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.
- Freeze: freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
- Reheat: gently heat most of the food in the oven at 325 for 15 minutes, or place some in the microwave for 2-3 minutes.
