Recipe (keep in mind this is the recipe I personally used and I tweaked it a little because I was missing an item etc) - One bag of shrimp (400 grams) - 3 chopped bell peppers - 1 and a half tablespoons of curry powder - 3 cloves of garlic (minced) - 1 small onion diced - Scotch peppers ( to your liking) - I teaspoon old bay seasoning - Salt to taste - Maggi cube - coconut milk - Edit: the recipe also calls for thyme but I didn’t have any so I didn’t add it to mine 1- Mix the shrimp, bell peppers, curry powder, old bay seasoning, scotch pepper, minced garlic, onion and salt together 2- in a frying pan, put a good amount of avocado or olive oil and add 2 teaspoons of curry and mix until the curry color becomes darker 3- add the seasoned shrimp and bell peppers to the curry and oil and cook, while the shrimp cooks add a cup of water and a Maggie cube and mix it all together and let it simmer for 5 minutes 4- once the shrimp looks cooked add a cup of coconut milk and mix and let simmer for another 5 minutes

Would you mind sharing what curry powder you use exactly? I struggle to find a authentic one for Caribbean cooking in London!


Diligent_Ad6228

Chief Curry Powder, 230 g https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00UZBEIO8/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_G02Q33SPD7N2CQ7CPWK1


SunflowersTan

Thanks so much :)


DonGorgon

What do you think of Betapac curry powder?


Diligent_Ad6228

Never tried it, but as it is Jamaican, I think that's a popular choice for Caribbean cooking


Al1ss3n

Betapac is the #1 choice of Jamaicans my favorite.....Chief is Trinidadian which has a lot of Indian culture influence.

Thank you for this lovely recipe ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|yummy)

What is a 'maggie cube'? Is it a bouillon cube?


cucumberhateaccount

Yea pretty much


blackpepperjc

There's a brand called Maggi who do a lot of food industry flavourings, sauces and cooking ingredients. I'm on a guess that this is what OP is referring to (sorry if I've picked this up wrongly) In the UK we have a brand called OXO who make dried stock cubes, granules etc for blending and thickening out sauces for gravy, soups etc. Beef, chicken, veg stock. All are handy in cooking if you haven't cooked the full chicken yourself already and made a stock, for example in this case. I know that Maggi do little bottles of liquid seasoning, which is pretty much basically MSG unless I'm corrected, but it's useful for discovering that you can make a lot of Chinese takeaway at home.


usrnm1234

Is there a substitute or recipe for old bay? We don't have that here


premegolpher

Do you mince the scotch bonnets, or a rough dice?


cucumberhateaccount

I diced mine but I don’t think it matters how you cut it


Candid_Collection_30

Why non Indians can’t find time to study various spices n there tastes n there combinations in different dishes… or curries…. N just Sum them up in a curry powder….. every curry in india has different spices with multiple combinations n quantities….. curry powder is same to us like ketchup is for Italians on Pizza…..


GreatWhiteDom

I mean, it's not an Indian curry, so I guess that's why? Also why would you look down on someone for using a premixed spice blend? Do you use Garam Masala in your cooking? Chinese five spice? Panch Pouri? They are all pre mixed spice blends, no different to curry powder.


Candid_Collection_30

Jamaican curries are Indian curries ….U think Garam Masala is mixture of 5 spices…. That too Chinese…. Lolz


GreatWhiteDom

Garam masala isn't a mix of five spices and I never said it was. Just because the other two things I metioned are five spices? Jamaican curries may have *started* as Indian curries, but have over time been adapted by the local culture. Curry was probably brought over as an idea by the British (who had also adapted curry to their own tastes). It is now definitely a Jamaican/Carribbean dish in its own right. With the addition of the scotch bonnet and coconut milk (which I am aware is used in some Indian curries but wasn't used by the British)

Jamaican me hungry

honemahone

Hehe, classic. Last night my wife and I were watching a show that mentioned Norway, and I kept asking her where they were talking about. Whenever she said Norway, I'd say "But they must be talking about somewhere". After like a minute of this looped conversation she was getting a bit worked up so I let her in on the 'joke' that Norway mildly, kind of, almost sounds similar to the word nowhere. She didn't find it funny, because it wasn't, but I was in stitches. And that's been the highlight of January so far...


__PM_me_pls__

This ain't it chief


Generic_Pete

I always go for the "no way" joke with Norway lol


Hei5enberg

I think this is only funny if you're an American.

It's not even funny to Americans

[deleted]

As a Caribbean your recipe looks very delicious. With love, for that size shrimp consider cutting the cooking time in half to just about 5 minutes total and serve. By the time it's done, served, and plated that carry over cooking will turn them a lickkle bit rubbery. Small adjustment to a great recipe. Thanks for sharing!


cucumberhateaccount

Thanks!! I’ll keep that in mind next time I make it


DuckTapeHandgrenade

Yeah, this is a good tip. Add the coconut milk before they look fully cooked so ya don’t overcook the shrimp. Thanks for sharing, I’m looking forward to making this. Shrimp is my favorite fruit.


shmackaholic

Ugh, me


butter_onapoptart

What did cucumbers do to you? You're in a safe space. You can share.

Lmaooo I just can’t stand cucumbers :/ they’re too crunchy and lack flavour imo

That maggie cube tho


shortystack

Thank you for the recipe, looks so fregging good! Take my free award, sorry I can't give you gold.


steveofthejungle

Perfect! I have some Jamaican curry powder I need to use so I’ll be making this soon!


88onfleek

How many servings does this make


cucumberhateaccount

I made it for 3 people and we had leftovers so I’d say like 4-5


Ace-Hunter

I assume you can substitute the shrimp for other meats? I assume the boiled shrimp would have a tough texture.


cucumberhateaccount

The shrimp texture turned out really good for me, but you can def substitute shrimp for chicken or lamb or any other meats


iloveokashi

Chicken curry is common here. But we normally use green/yellow curry (not spicy) and also use coconut milk. It's so yummy.


pigmentissues

Curry shrimp*


huntybobo

Came here looking for this comment


nissansupragtr

Ooh this looks like South Indian curry too


No_Mercy_4_Potatoes

Just missing the coconut milk


iloveokashi

It has coconut milk. Look at step 4.


n3m37h

Just missing some banana, looks delicious //No, I mean Banana, not 100% sure what recipe I've had but it was a Shrimp and Banana curry and looks identical. I normally don't like warm banana but it is delicious in a curry


XVince162

It would go great with chifles (thick plantain chips)


Ignorhymus

*plantain. And while we're at it, it's curry shrimp. Edit: why is this being downvoted? In the west Indies, we call it curry shrimp, not shrimp curry. And we sure as fuck don't serve it with banana


jayjay0884

Maybe they meant green banana?


n3m37h

Nope a plain old banana, sounds weird but is oddly delicious


SunsetIndigoRealty

What lol. Why not some apples and oranges too.


moonshinesushi

Jamaican here. I thought this was about [green bananas](https://www.thespruceeats.com/green-bananas-in-caribbean-cooking-2138082). Personally not a fan but it's a pretty common side starch. Same as plantains, flour dumplings, boiled potatoes, yam or taro (eddoh).


n3m37h

I've had a Banana Shrip Curry before, it may not be for everyone but I found it oddly delicious


plyslz

Such an uneducated comment, there is a culinary world that exists beyond the little corner you're familiar with.


SunsetIndigoRealty

So educate me Professor Plyslz!


luisl1994

Because those would not belong on this plate.


SunsetIndigoRealty

And neither would banana.


luisl1994

Plantain would go nicely here


SunsetIndigoRealty

Hard disagree. Can’t stand plantain. This is fine by itself.


Anarcho_Absurdist

That's fine, plantain doesn't like you either.


SunsetIndigoRealty

Good! Humph!


Ginrou

Wow, some one people pick stupid hills to die on.


SunsetIndigoRealty

It's an opinion tons o fun. But keep downvoting away. I couldn't give a fuck.


Ginrou

I'm sure someone will oblige.


moncoeurpourtoi

They probably call sweet plantain banana in the Caribbean 🙄 context....


[deleted]

[удалено]


DandyEmo

From the Caribbean and yes. If they are sweet they're called sweet plantains. If green just tostones. Never heard someone calling the bananas lol.


kog

Imagine being so confidently clueless.


SunsetIndigoRealty

There is a difference between banana and plantain Professor Kog.


jayjay0884

Person most likely talking about green banana, it's much closer to potato, yam and other starchy foods.


reedzkee

Looks a lot like etoufee, one of my favorite meals. I’ll have to try this.


jaspersgroove

Same general idea, just with a Caribbean flavor profile instead of Cajun/Creole


Lemonking_

Tip. Plate the rice first, then the curry.


NotYourNat

I kinda like OP’s way too, it’s different and interesting to see it done another way.


panzerxiii

I feel like I see it done this way in some regions


Diligent_Ad6228

I'll be honest with you . A Jamaican or Caribbean curry usually has not only Scotch bonnet peppers , but generally Caribbean curry powder is used , it tastes different to a South Asian curry and most of the time the coconut milk isn't included.( Depends on preference). For an authentic taste the recipe has to include pimento seeds , chopped scallions / spring onions, Scotch bonnet garlic ,onions ,thyme. This is the basis of most Jamaican recipes. The sauce is also thicker. Source : I'm of African heritage with a Jamaican partner. I cooked my favourite Caribbean curry today . Best curry powder I've ever used is [this ](http://Chief Curry Powder, 230 g https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00UZBEIO8/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_G02Q33SPD7N2CQ7CPWK1) It's Trinidadian, but they are Kings and Queens of Caribbean curry.


cucumberhateaccount

I didn’t have some of the ingredients so I substituted some things and took out the things I didn’t have but it still turned out really delicious, will def try making it again one time when I have all the ingredients


Diligent_Ad6228

I'm sure it was a lovely curry, but not Jamaican or Caribbean in that case . Try looking up an authentic recipe on YouTube, there are loads of fantastic Caribbean cooks on there . Believe me once you've had a proper " Yard style " curry chicken/prawn/goat you'll never have it any other way 😋


cucumberhateaccount

I did use an authentic YouTube recipe, I just didn’t have all the ingredients the recipe was asking for so I did with what I had lol


Diligent_Ad6228

Well I'm sure it'll be a lovely Jamaican Curry next time when you do. Do try the curry powder too it's incredible!


cucumberhateaccount

Yess I’ll def be buying that and using it next time :)


Liquidmaximo

Could you link the curry powder again? Bad link

cucumberhateaccount

Thank you, I posted it in the comments :)


SneezySniz

I need to know. Do Jamaicans add coconut milk to their curry? Because every friggin Thai/Asian curry dish does and it absolutely ruins the flavors of the curry.


DaSpaceLinx

Okay I'm sure I'll get murdered for this but for Jamaican curry ANYTHING your gravy has to be thicker. I would also recommend using the dehydrated coconut cream and or coconut oil over the typical can of viet coconut milk. Basmati rice is also seldom used it just doesn't match our curry's texture well


hoihoi666

This looks incredible 👍🤌


MR_T3Z

Curry shrimp bumbohole


OhSkuntBuddeh

As a Guyanese, why do Jamaicans be putting bell peppers and carrots in their curry? Like why?


iloveokashi

Not Jamaican. But we also have potatoes with carrots and bell peppers in our curry. It's so. Yummy.


OhSkuntBuddeh

Potatoes are fine but in terms of Caribbean curry, carrots are very weird.


SovereignAxe

Some people have trouble eating vegetables if they aren't mixed in with their dishes
