Jamaican Coconut Curry Shrimp

Jamaican food is up there on my list of favorite foods. I just love the spices and those deep curry flavors!

That is next to Thai and Indian curry recipes of course too. 

This curry is pretty unique and is also super simple to make. 

WHAT IS IN JAMAICAN SHRIMP COCONUT CURRY

It is made with fresh or frozen uncooked shrimp, scotch bonnet peppers or cayenne powder, onions, garlic, ginger, thick coconut milk and spices. 

Be certain to use “Jamaican curry” along with a thick coconut milk to make this curry authentic in taste!

Talk about an easy and healthy meal option ~ am I right?

WHAT IS JAMAICAN COCONUT SHRIMP CURRY

It has plenty of green peppers and shrimp that is slowly simmered in a blend of spices.

I like to use the sauce as it saves my eyes and hands from using the hot peppers. Feel free to substitute with cayenne pepper if you choose.
