Ok folks, I've gone and done it again. I don't know what it is about Cajun food that this is the second straight Food Crazie creation I've made from it. So yeah, like the below post, we had a Cajun meal the night before but this time it wasn't Jambalaya but it's very close cousin Gumbo.
What is the difference between Gumbo and Jambalaya you might ask? Well... funny you should ask because I asked my foodie partner in crime (who happened to be the cook of this here fine Gumbo) the same the other night. The answer, I got was that Gumbo has okra while Jambalaya does not. I'm sure there is variations with that here and there but I'll stick with that one for now.
On to what I turned that Gumbo into. It is something simple but it's something that I'd been thinking about creating for this blog for awhile now... basically that being a shrimp omelet. The Gumbo afforded me that opportunity so I took a swing at it and the results.. the results came out very southwestern which is not a bad thing. The verdict in a bit but first the recipe.
- 2 eggs
- medium shrimp
- smoked sausage
- purple onions
- cheddar cheese
- salsa verde
