This spicy yet flavorful peppered shrimp recipe is simmered slowly for maximum results and makes a great summer appetizer or main course.

Ingredients

 1 Raw shrimp with shell and head, deveined
 1 Scotch bonnet pepper, chopped
 3 tbsp Pepper sauce
 2 tsp Onion powder
 1 tsp Black pepper
 1 tsp Garlic powder
 2 tsp Paprika
 ¼ tsp Pimento powder/crusted pimento berries
 1 Spring of thyme
 ¼ cup Warm water
 1 Cob of corn, sliced into chunks
 6 6 baby potatoes, cut in halves
 Water and white vinegar, for washing the shrimp

Directions

1

Rinse the shrimp thoroughly with water and vinegar then season with the first 8 ingredients and allow to marinate for up to an hour.

2

Meanwhile, boil the potato and corn in lightly-salted water until tender.

3

Preheat a frying pan/dutch pot with 1-2 tbsp of oil over medium heat. Using a slotted spoon, gently lower the shrimp into the pot and allow it to change colour before you stir.

4

Once it starts to change colour, add the 1/4 cup of warm water, cooked potatoes, and corn and then cover the pot with the lid and leave to gently steam for 5 minutes.

The shrimp should have a nice pinkish-reddish look and be ready to eat. The sauce on the shrimp will thicken as it cools.

Enjoy!
