Jerk Shrimp Recipe


Those who love a little spice are sure to enjoy this grilled jerk shrimp recipe. It’s perfect for summer and outdoor grilling. This is shrimp coated with a jerk spice mixture and then grilled. The seasoning is a combination of sweet and spicy. Grilling shrimp is one of my favorite cooking methods for it; I just love the flavor that is produced from the grill. This is a Caribbean dish that is very easy to prepare and takes little effort. Serving with fresh mango salsa is a must. Enjoy.

The spicy jerk shrimp would go so well with the sweet and juicy mango salsa!
