You might think it’s odd that I’m bringing you a seasoning recipe this week. But, hear me out. This is going in a good direction, I promise!
Unfortunately, they are not conveniently located and it takes us forever and a day to get there. So, when we do go, it’s a long drive and then we fork-fight to see who gets to eat the last shrimp out of that buttery, delectable, jerk-spiced dish.
Yes, it’s worth a good fork-fight because it’s seriously just that good.
I realized that in order to stop that nonsense, I needed to learn to make it at home.
Yet, when I surfed the internet and tried to find a recipe, I was not only completely unsuccessful, but also disappointed. In fact, many links led me to the Fire Roasted Jerk Shrimp on the Bahama Breeze website. But after a few attempts, that recipe was a far cry from what they actually serve in the restaurant.
The Skillet Simmered Jerk Shrimp dish is clearly loaded with juicy tomatoes, green peppers, loads of garlic and a ton of mouth-watering goodies.
I spent weeks trying to duplicate it. Which led me to this Jamaican Jerk Seasoning recipe.
And…finally…I have a Skillet Simmered Jerk Shrimp recipe that is nearly identical to Bahama Breezes. Finally, no more long drives and fork-fights!
I’ll post the shrimp recipe on Thursday, so be sure to stop back if you love it as much as we do!
But first…, you will need some Jamaican Jerk Seasoning.
See? I told you it was going to be good.
