Mostly Recipes with a Few Insights about Paleo Life

Paleo Cod and Shrimp Jambalaya

on August 24, 2012

The only word I can think of to describe this recipe is: YUM! This is a great recipe that my whole family loves.  We like to add some hot sauce on it, but leave it off on the kids portions.  I also served mine with a side of cauliflower rice.  Here’s what I did:


  • 1.5 lbs wild caught cod fillets
  • 1 lb wild caught shrimp, peeled
  • 1/4 cup pastured butter (or ghee)
  • 1/2 lb chopped carrots
  • 2 bell peppers- I used red and orange
  • 1 leek, sliced (any onion would work)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 2-3 cups chicken broth
  • hot sauce (optional)

Melt butter in a soup pot and saute the carrots for 5 minutes.  Add the peppers, leeks, and garlic and cook for 4-5 minutes.  Add all the spices and the broth and bring to a boil.   In the meantime, cut the fish into bite size pieces and make sure fish and shrimp are fairly dry.  Add fish and shrimp to pot.  Simmer until the shrimp are pink and the fish begins to flake.  Add hot sauce, if you’d like.  Serve and enjoy!
