Hey all New here and wondering if someone can help. I've friends over for dinner tonight and I'm cooking a jambalaya, I want to cook it an hour or so before we eat so I'm not faffing when they are here, can I keep it warm enough to serve for that long and when should I add the prawns.
I wouldn’t cook rice that far ahead to keep warm. Do you cook the rice in together with everything else (absorption way) or separately? I cook mine all in together - if I’m trying to get ahead, I fry onions, veg etc first then cool it. Quick reheat, add rice and stock then it’s pretty hands free and add prawns at the end. Not much faffing.
