Jamaican Garlic Shrimp


4 cups water

1/2 cup chopped scallions
4 crushed garlic cloves
3 thyme sprigs
2-3 whole habanero/scotch bonnet chilis
2 tbsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
10 whole allspice (or you can use the powder allspice)
1 lb 20/25 shrimp

Mix all ingredients except shrimp in large pot, bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer (covered) for 20 minutes

Remove pot from heat and stir in shrimp, making sure they're all covered with the liquid. Let the pot cool for about an hour uncovered, then serve with a little of the cooking liquid

Nice. I tried it and was pretty successful...thanks. What do you think about the frozen meals from Grace... they have a Jerk Shrimp and I'm interested in testing that out. Yeah I'm a shrimp lover!! haha.

Let me know... maybe you should do a blog on that... looking for it.

jranston, I don't like Grace's frozen meals only because they have to much salt in them. I think you would be more better jerking the shrimp yourself.
