Caribbean Style Curry Shrimp

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb shrimp
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 2 scallions
  • 1/2 scotch bonnet pepper
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 bell pepper
  • 4 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoon lime or lemon juice

DIRECTIONS

  1. Remove the outer shell of the shrimp and devein them. Squeeze the lime or lemon juice over the shrimp, give it a good stir, then rinse with cool water. Drain and get ready to season so it can marinate.
  2. Chop the scallion, thyme, onion, peppers, tomato and garlic. In a large bowl add the clean shrimp with salt, black pepper, chopped scotch bonnet and bell peppers, thyme and scallions. Give it a good stir and allow it to marinate for at least 20 minutes.
  3. In a large sauce pan, heat the oil over a med/high heat, then add the sliced onions and garlic. Allow that to cook on a med heat for about 3-4 minutes or until they get soft and edges start going golden. Add the curry powder, stirring for a couple minutes until the flavours are released. Turn the heat down slightly to allow the powder to heat for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Once hot, slowly add the water to start making a curry paste. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a gentle simmer. After about 4 minutes, turn up the heat to burn off the excess water, forming a paste.
  5. Add the marinated shrimp and veggies from the large bowl and stir on medium heat. With the lid open and the shrimp at a rolling boil. Cook the shrimp for about 5-7 minutes.
  6. Once the shrimp has cooked through (the colour has changed and starts to curl), let simmer and serve!
