Bacon and Shrimp Jambalaya

Bacon and Shrimp Jambalaya


400 grams Smoked Bacon, diced
2 Celery Stalks, diced
1 Red Bell Pepper, diced
4 Cloves Garlic, chopped
3 Sprigs of Thyme
2 Cups Organic Brown Long Grain Rice
½ tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 Can (28 oz/796 ml) Whole Tomatoes, diced & reserved about ½ cup liquid
4 ½ Cups Chicken Stock
1 ½ Cup Frozen Cooked Small Shrimps, thawed
1 Cup Frozen Corn, thawed
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper


In a large saucepan, cook the bacon until the fat is rendered, until crisp. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside-reserved ½ portion for sprinkling. Pour the rendered bacon fat in a bowl for another use.

Meanwhile, heat the saucepan over medium heat with one tablespoon of the reserved rendered bacon fat. Add the celery, pepper, and garlic and cook until the mixture is sticky and slightly caramelized. Then, add the thyme, rice, and cayenne pepper. Give the mixture a good stir, season with sea salt and pepper. Then add the tomatoes, reserved liquid, and chicken stock. Bring it to a boil, reduce the heat, cook, covered for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed.

Remove the cover, stir in the bacon, cooked shrimps and corn. Cook uncovered for another 10 minutes until excess moisture is evaporated. Sprinkle the reserved bacon before serving.
