Shrimp + Sausage Jambalaya

My husband recently went on a spearfishing trip in the Gulf of Mexico and bought some shrimp right off a shrimp boat he encountered. I wanted to try a new recipe with these super fresh shrimp, so decided to try to make Jambalaya for the first time ever. It was surprisingly so easy and turned out AMAZING. This recipe is definitely becoming a constant in our house.
