You can leave the heads on (which is my favourite part) or you can take them off.
This is my favourite Jamaican snack, but beware, because they are very, very HOT!
- 1 lb shrimp or prawns
- 2 green onions chopped
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 or 2 scotch bonnet peppers (depending on how hot you want it)
- 1/3 cup oil for frying
- In a large pan, heat oil to medium and then add green onions, garlic and peppers. Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes
- Add shrimp, making sure each shrimp is thoroughly covered in the mixture and cook for about 5 minutes, or until each shrimp is bright red
- Let them cool and drain on some paper towel
Now get a cold Red Stripe (not that we encourage the consumption of alcoholic beverages) and dig in!
