Everyone needs a hearty cajun jambalaya recipe. This healthy seafood sausage jambalaya is a perfect crockpot comfort meal!

 

This Cajun style jambalaya recipe is jam packed with delicious meats, veggies and spices. According to the Oxford English Dictionary jambalaya comes from the Provençal word jambalaia, meaning a mish mash, or mix-up. I would say this recipe is true to that. It was literally overflowing out the crockpot, I maybe tried to fit a little too much in. Oops.

I’ve only been to New Orleans (self-proclaimed jambalaya capital of the world) once but I can tell you this recipe is a good one if you’re craving cajun food.

I used three different proteins, tons of veggies and mixed it all together with a little rice. This recipe was an easy weeknight meal and a crowd pleaser. Most of the spices you probably already have and proteins can be bought frozen or fresh!
