Peppered shrimp is popular in Jamaica, especially in Middle Quarters, ST. Elizabeth. Peppered shrimp is spicy and salt-ish but you can cut back on the spiciness and salt. Jamaican-style peppered shrimp is mouth-watering and easy to prepare.
1 lb. shrimp
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. all-purpose seasoning
Crushed red pepper seeds (optional)
Scotch Bonnet pepper seeds
- Wash shrimp properly, drain and pat dry, using paper towel.
- Put a medium-size pot on medium heat to be hot.
- Put the shrimp in the hot pot and stir. Add the salt, stir. add the all-purpose, stir . Add the crushed pepper flakes and the scotch bonnet pepper seeds, stir.
Shrimp has its natural flavor. Therefore, I used only all-purpose seasoning to give it some spice as well as salt and hot pepper seeds to give it a spicy flavor. Shrimp released its own juice. Simmer the shrimp and let it dry, (simmer for about 4 minutes).
