Jamaica Pepper Shrimp

Here is a spicy island treat. Jamaican shrimps must be on steroids, because they are huge. I love all seafood dishes. (well except mussles, not too crazy about those). Try this recipe with a wonderful island drink and you swear you are in Jamaica mon.


1 lb large shrimp in shell
3 crushed garlic cloves
3 thyme sprigs
3 scotch bonnet peppers, halved and seeded
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/2 tablespoon black pepper
cooking oil


  1. Over medium heat, add 1/4 -1/2 cup oil with garlic, salt, black pepper, scotch bonnets, and thyme sprigs.
  2. Add the shrimp and cook for 5 minutes. Keep stirring the shrimp then add the vinegar.
  3. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.
