This version of jambalaya is grilled in foil packets, resulting in a tender stew with a slight smoky flavour.
May 6, 2013

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) uncooked regular long-grain white rice
  • 3 cups (750 mL) water
  • 1 lb (500 g) uncooked deveined peeled large shrimp, thawed if frozen, tail shells removed
  • 1 lb (500 g) scallops, thawed if frozen
  • 1 can (14 oz/398 mL) diced tomatoes with garlic and onions, undrained
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped (1 cup/250 mL)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup/125 mL)
  • 3 to 4 tsps (15 to 20 mL) Cajun seasoning

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 6 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Cook rice in water as directed on package. In large bowl, mix cooked rice and remaining ingredients. Place 1/6 of mixture (dividing shrimp and scallops evenly) on centre of each sheet.
  • 2
    Bring up 2 sides of foil over shrimp mixture so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
  • 3
    Place packets on grill over low heat. Cover grill; cook 12 to 15 minutes, rotating packets 1/2 turn after 6 minutes, until shrimp are pink.
  • 4
    To serve, cut large X across top of each packet; carefully fold back foil to allow steam to escape.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Spice It Up: To pump up the heat even more, add 1 teaspoon red pepper sauce.
  • Tip 2
    Tip: You can spoon the jambalaya from the foil packets onto plates, or eat right from the packets.
