Reviews forJamaican Shrimp
"Just made yesterday for our Jamaican party - everyone LOVED it. IT was the first thing to go. Light and flavorful. I would DEFINITELY make this again."
"I've made this twice & both times I had to give the recipe out countless times. Every piece was gone. Super easy to make"
