Nom Nom Nom: Jamaican Curry Shrimp

Our awesome neighborhood comes with a variety of little social groups including a cooking club, the "Springfield Skillet." Once a month neighbors get together cooking up a storm based on a monthly theme and have a great time, enjoying food and company. While I can't make this month's meeting I did some recipe browsing because it's a beautiful opportunity to discover and add a new favorite to your staple dishes. This month's theme is "Jamaican" brought to you by the letter "J." My neighbor Heather found this great Jamaican cooking website on the internet "Cook Like A Jamaican", and their Curry shrimp dish definitely caught my eye.

  • 1 bag of shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 green pepper, sliced
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 tsp tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 can of coconut milk(unsweetened!)
  • pepper, salt, garlic, butter
Saute your peppers, onion and garlic in butter until almost soft. Add tomato paste, diced tomato and deglaze with coconut milk. Add curry powder, then salt and pepper to taste. Add your shrimp and cook in sauce until done. I served it with buttered brown rice, and, boy, was it finger-licking, lip-smacking good!

The husband and I finished the entire pan (Little Man is no big fan of shrimp, so he had his beloved fish stick sandwich), and he agreed that this recipe is definitely a keeper. Yum!
