Jerk Shrimp


  • 1 pound large shrimp (16/20 or 21/25)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • ½ cup scallions, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground pimento (allspice)
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 hot pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • ¼ cup cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar (cider or white)


01Place all the ingredients (except the shrimp, of course) in a food processor fitted with the steel blade and process until everything is well combined. Store the leftover marinade in the refrigerator in a tightly closed jar for about 1 month.

02In a large bowl season the shrimp with a generous amount of jerk seasoning. Let sit for 20 minutes.

03Preheat a a saute pan with a little bit of olive oil. Add shrimp and cook about 5 minutes a side. If you want to grill, thread the shrimp on a BBQ skewer and alternate with pineapple and red onion.

04Serve the shrimp as an appetizer with lime wedges, and crusty bread… or serve it with rice and vegetables (or a crispy salad) for a main.
