Jamaican Jerk Baked Shrimp
~ Ridiculously easy Jamaican Jerk baked shrimps are lip-smacking delicious. Slightly spicy, slightly smoky and absolutely saucy! ~
I’ll get into recipe in a just a second. I have an exciting news to share! 🙂
Barhyte Specialty Foods announced their annual Saucy Mama’s recipe contest. I’m so happy to be selected among 25 other amazing bloggers to participate in Saucy Mama’s 2014 Recipe Contest. They sent me a kit of 6 amazingly delicious condiments, including Jamaican Jerk Wing Sauce, Orange Habanero Wing Sauce , Honey BBQ Wing Sauce, Hot Wing Sauce , Four Leaf Balsamic Vinaigrette and Marinade , and Honey Dijon Dressing.
As soon as we received the package, my husband and I tested each one of them right away and started brainstorming about how we can use them. Honestly, all of them were great. But if we had to select the top three, we would choose Honey Dijon dressing, Jamaican jerk wing sauce, and Four Leaf balsamic vinaigrette.
The stakes for this contest are high this year. The winner of the contest not only will win $1000 cash prize, but also will be going to 2014 WORLD FOOD CHAMPIONSHIPS in Las Vegas! I’m so excited and challenged. As I started testing some recipes, I wanted to share with you one of my favorites so far.
Again, this recipe is super simple. You will need dozen or so jumbo shrimps, peel them, but leave the tails on. Then using a sharp pairing knife, make a shallow cut along the back of the shrimp and remove that black vein. To butterfly the shrimp, cut it deeper as shown above. If you don’t want to go through this process, you can always ask your fishmonger to devein and butterfly the shrimps for you. (We don’t have fishmonger around here, and I have to do this myself!)
Now just toss the shrimps with Saucy Mama’s Jamaican Jerk sauce and let it marinade for half an hour. You can actually grill these babies, or simply bake them at 350 degrees F for 10-15minutes, or until they turn opaque. For extra sauciness, beat cream cheese and Jamaican jerk sauce until creamy to serve on the side. Isn’t it simple??
These shrimps are loaded with rich, deep flavors and especially wonderful paired with creamy spicy sauce! Finger-licking good!
