  1. I cooked this last night in my slow cooker but instead of the Cajun spice as couldn’t find any I swapped it for
    1tsp of paprika
    1/4 cayenne pepper
    1tsp dried thyme
    1tsp dried oregano
    & 2 bay leaves..
    was such a lovely dish went down really well with the family as well.

  2. Omg so amazing. I used brown rice and added prawns 30 minutes before serving. Thanks so much for this delicious recipe ?

  3. Made this the other day was really nice but the rice turned out to be mushy. Just wondering what o can do to prevent this for next time
