Hey all -
I'm making a Jambalaya that I'm quite familiar with making for a dinner party with friends tomorrow. However, I need some help making some timing decisions. The recipe includes shrimp, chicken, ham and sausage, and cooks for about 1.5 hours. We are going to a theater event at 3pm-5pm and I would like to do the cooking before so I can just reheat and focus on dessert & salad in the evening.
If I cook it beforehand, let it rest, and then reheat, do I risk the shrimp drying out?
And, would it make more sense to cook & then put in the fridge, or just let stand?
Thanks for the help folks!
