Shrimp Rundown

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by conniecooks

The Jamaicans serve this when their budget is rundown, since shrimp is cheap on their island. My husband's friend, a Jamaican-born chef, gave me this recipe. It is awesome.

I just made this tonight and it was delicious. I made some alterations
I used coconut water vs regular water. I used Coconut Milk with just a splash of Coconut Cream as I did not want a really sweet dish.

The family loved it.
