Jerk Shrimp recipe from Dr. Gourmet


Prepare the barbecue (medium heat) if the jerk is to be grilled.

Place the shrimp and jerk seasoning blend in a zipper bag, seal, and shake the bag until the shrimps are thoroughly coated. Let marinate at least ten minutes.

Thread shrimp onto metal or soaked wooden skewers (for the grill) or place a griddle or grill pan over medium high heat.

Grill on the barbecue or grill pan for about 8 minutes on the first side and then turn. Cook until opaque in the center. Total cooking time will be about 15 minutes.
