I agree, I do now remember thinking the same thing when I last made it, about a year ago... it was a bit soupy...
But I think I'd leave out about 1/2 cup of the crushed tomatos... and add a bout 1/2 cup of the infused broth, just for the flavor...
actually I think next time I'll use whole plum tomatos (and seed them , then cut them into chunks myself) packed in puree... I like the tomatos a bit more "chunky" than crushed...
also I'd add a small amount of roux about 30 mimutes before adding the shrimp...

Thanks for all the feedback and suggestions! Glad you two enjoyed it...
It's really good as is, even if a bit soupy!
I'm not sure, but I think authentic Jambalaya is supposed to be soupy?
But I'd prefer it not so...

Brian, I think you're right; it's supposed to be soupy. Probably should serve it in a shallow bowl, and eat with a spoon, almost like a soup or stew. I might do that tomorrow with the leftovers.

OK, this is interesting! I Googled Jambalaya to see if it was supposed to be soupy, and this is a part of what I read on Wikipedia:

Jambalaya is differentiated from other traditional ethnic Louisiana dishes, such as gumbo and étouffée, by the way in which the rice is included. In the latter dishes, the rice is cooked separately and is served as a bed which the main dish is served on. In the usual method of preparing Jambalaya, a rich stock is created from vegetables, meat, and seafood. Raw rice is then added to the broth and the flavor is absorbed by the grains as the rice cooks.

I don't think there's enough liquid in this recipe to add raw rice, but maybe adding a little more liquid and then raw rice would work.
