dense had the "gumbo ya ya" at the lost pelican.  we didn't think it was as good as mine.  with gumbo you start with hot oil and flour and make a roux.  apparently you don't do that with jambalaya. 
Yep, I like Gumbo & have made it many times.

can you point to a specific recipe for this?


Well i didn't make it from a specific recipe.  Marinating shrimp in soy and honey and then sauteing them in butter for a short time is about the best formula i have found for tasty tender shrimp.  these shrimp were whole, eyes attached, and their shells made a good stock.

the sauce was onions and garlic and red peppers and celery slow sweated in left over bacon grease from breakfast the day before.  to that i added lots of fresh tomatoes with their skins removed which were reduced down.  I don't recommend quite so much ginger ... i fought that taste in the final dish ... in the end i had to add about a tablespoon of honey to contract a bitter taste that mighty have been from the ginger and/or a bit of burning on the bottom of the pan.  finally i threw in some baked red peppers and a lot of chopped fresh basil and the stock from the shrimp, a bit of roasted jalapeno, and some Worcestershire sauce.

it was good, but a work in progress ... i doubt that it will ever be duplicated ... even by me.  Even though there was a whole lot of tomato it still was not as tomato tasting as the one from the Lost Pelican which was a lot simpler.   I suspect the closest thing to this online would be a "Cajun Jambalaya", the inspiration did come from a Cajun restaurant.
sounds good - will try later.  I like jumbalaya & gumbo.
