Jambalaya

Gonzales, La., in addition to having a Cabela's, Don's Seafood Restaurant, and a nice outlet shopping mall, also claims to be the Jambalaya capitol of the world.


 
I personally favor Gumbo, Crawfish Pie, and Etouffee', but I have never turned down a plate of Cajun Jambalaya.

Their name is pronounced as crayfish by folks that don't know how to correctly pronounce crawfish.  They are a freshwater creature that thrive in muddy bottomed waters.  And yes, they are large clawed like a lobster, but not much larger than large shrimp.  Their tails are small as compared with their bodies.

Do a forum search for "crawfish" and you will be wishing for a tray of mudbugs.   ;D

Crawfish (in LA) is a small freswater crustacean, kinda like a shrimp, but different.  Looks like a lobster from NE US. Taste is different.

When I was about 8 years old, (I'm 58 now), my parents took us kids down to south Louisiana to visit my uncle in Morgan City. I remember we were outside at a restaurant sitting in a covered area with picnic tables. All of a sudden, and totally unexpected by me, a lady walked up and dumped a bucket of red crawfish on the table. I was scared, and shocked! They just looked like something from a horror movie to me! That was my first introduction to crawfish...and needless to say, I did NOT touch any of them. I love them today, though.

I fix jambalaya all the time (my version anyway.) I like the chicken and sausage type. It tastes better the second day after being left in the refg. overnite. I guess the flavors marinate and come together.
