This recipe is inspired by one of my favorite restaurants. Can you guess? I ABSOLUTELY love shrimp and the seasonings combined because it makes the taste linger on the palate of your tongue and it makes you crave more! The rice and beans help fill you up and the mango salsa is the perfect pairing with the plantains because it gives the cool sweetness against the spicy shrimp. If you crave eating out- DON’T. Make this instead! Enjoy!
Jamaican Black Pepper Shrimp
Start with the plantains. Cut slanted until the entire plantain is cut. Deep fry at 350º until brown. Season with salt to taste.
Properly cook the Jasmine rice (2 cups of water for 1 cup of rice). Add 1 Tbsp of olive oil. Once the rice comes to a boil, drain the starched water and refill the pot with fresh water, even with the half- cooked rice. After, set the heat to medium-low and let it cook until rice is thoroughly cooked.
Warm the canned beans.
Pre-heat your cast iron pan. When ready to cook, place heat on low to medium. Line the pan with olive oil and add butter. Add minced garlic and white rice flour. Whisk briskly to form a roux. Add the shrimp and completely coat all shrimp with roux, then add chicken broth. Season with cayenne pepper, black pepper, and thyme. Lower the heat and add in worcestershire sauce, ginger ale, corn syrup, brown sugar and Jerk seasoning. Cook on low for 10 minutes and set aside.
Fruits are last so they are fresh when plated: open and chop up sliced peaches. Chop mango and tomato and sprigs of parsley. Plate everything and Enjoy!
