Touchdown Jambalaya

Marinade:

3 tbsp (45 mL) vegetable oil
2 tbsp (30 mL) lime juice
1 tbsp (15 mL) Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp (10 mL) chipotle powder

2 cloves minced garlic
2 hot Italian sausages (about 1/2 lb, 250 g), butterflied lengthwise
1/2 lb (250 g) boneless Canadian strip loin steak
1/2 lb (250 g) medium shrimp, (about 12 - 14 shrimp) peeled, de-veined and tails removed

2 tbsp (30 mL) vegetable oil
1 cup (250 mL) diced onion
1/2 cup (125 mL) each chopped celery and chopped green pepper
1/2 tsp (2 mL) each salt, pepper and minced garlic
2 tbsp (30 mL) tomato paste
1 (341 mL) bottle lager beer
28oz/798 mL can diced plum tomatoes
1/2 cup (125 mL) beef or chicken stock
1/2 cup (125 mL) white long grain rice (not instant)
1 tbsp (15 mL) lime juice
1/3 cup (75 mL) each chopped fresh cilantro and sour cream

Method:
Stir together vegetable oil, lime juice, Worcestershire, chipotle powder and garlic. Measure out 2 tbsp (30 mL) of marinade and toss with shrimp. Reserve. Preheat grill to medium-high. Place sausages, cut side down and steak on grill and turn heat down to medium. Grill for about 4 minutes, brushing evenly with remaining marinade, flip steak and sausage and grill for an additional 3 - 5 minutes brushing with any additional marinade. Remove from grill and set aside. Clean grill then grill shrimp for about 2 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove from grill and reserve with steak and sausage.

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat and cook onions, celery, peppers, salt, pepper and garlic until fragrant - about 5 minutes stirring often. Stir in tomato paste, beer, and diced tomatoes (with juices), stock and bring to a boil. Add rice and reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring occasionally for about 20 to 25 minutes or until rice is cooked. Chop sausages and steak into chunky bite-size pieces. Add sausages, steak and whole grilled shrimp to Dutch oven. Divide jambalaya evenly between bowls and garnish evenly with sour cream and cilantro.

Makes 6 servings.

  • Use ¼ cup (50 mL) of whole grain rice in place of white for a fibre boost
  • Substitute chopped grilled eggplant, zucchini and peppers for meat and omit beef stock for a vegetarian dish
  • For a Louisiana style Jambalaya add 1 cup (250 mL) of okra to dish
