Unformatted text preview: 7. Enjoy! Shrimp jambalaya is a traditional Southern dish that is usually made with sausage as well. This was made for a lab with shellfish only, which is why sausage was not included. This meal is a great source of protein, with very little fat and no saturated fat. It also provides a good amount of Vitamin C, from the vegetables, and iron from the shrimp. Be sure to cover the pot when it’s cooking to ensure the shrimp and rice cook all the way. A good tip for enhancing flavor would be to sauté the shrimp in some lemon juice and seasonings first before putting in into the pot. You could also substitute for vegetables you like more, or change the seasonings if it is too spicy for you. This dish is great comfort food to fill you up with a lot of nutrients as well....
