  • 1 hot pepper

  • 2 pimento peppers

  • 2 cloves garlic, grated

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Cooking Directions

  • Devein the shrimp leaving the shell on.

  • Season with ginger, pimento pepper, garlic, black pepper, chadon beni, lime juice, 1 chive and salt.

  • Take a fork and scour the sides of the carrot.

  • Then cut each piece in half.

  • Separate the onion layers.

  • Cut up the hot pepper and chive.

  • Heat the oil in the wok over a medium flame.

  • Add the hot pepper and fry for 1 minute.


Frying hot pepper releases noxious fumes which can burn your eyes and make you cough and sneeze so be careful. I actually had to take the photograph quickly and run out of the kitchen but I still ended up with watery eyes and had an uncontrollable sneeze! (*sniff, sniff, Achoo!*) lol!

Add the shrimp and stir fry for 1 minute.

Add about 1/4 cup of ketchup, soy sauce and a little water…

Then add the onion, chive, sweet pepper and carrots

Add 1/4 cup ketchup and 1/4 cup water. Stir

Cover and simmer for 2 minutes

Garnish with a sprig of chive.

Now you know how to make Trini style pepper shrimp. I hope it was a wonderful experience for you.
