More proof that you can fry anything.

This year's winner for the Best New Fried Food at the Texas State Fair is: fried jambalaya.

The inventor describes it as a concoction of shrimp, sausage, and seasonings fried to golden perfection.

A spicy ranch sauce is served on the side.

This is the inventor's fifth title.

He also won "Best Fried Food" honors for fried coke, fried cookie dough, fried peanut butter, jelly, and banana sandwich, and fried butter.

He also says he gained 20 pounds perfecting this year's recipe.
