When most people think of Caribbean food flavors, one of the most popular dishes is Jerk chicken. However, some people may not know that there are other ways to use the Jerk flavors in other side dishes. This recipe is a perfect example of taking an average stovetop-cooked shrimp and kicking it up a notch. We will use our own Jerk Sauce Recipe to marinate the shrimp before cooking. After cooking this Jerk Shrimp, you may even think this is the best way to cook shrimp.

Wash, rinse, and devein the shrimp, then season with the jerk paste and let it marinate in a container for at least 1 hour or overnight for more depth of flavor.
Using a deep skillet add the oil and bring to medium-high heat.
When the oil is hot, place the seasoned shrimp into the pan and sauté for 1-2 minutes on each side.
Once cooked, remove from the pan and place on a serving dish and add a little water to the pan to deglaze it and then drizzle the sauce over the shrimp or pour into a sauce dish.
Serve warm as an appetizer or as part of your meal.
