Jamaican cooks know how to temper spicy peppers with a hint of sweetness. Zesty jerk seasoning , a little honey and fresh jalapeno capture the magical Caribbean taste in this crowd-pleasing appetizer.
Although this delicious dish takes time to prepare, it's conveniently made ahead and refrigerated until ready to serve.
In a large saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil. Add shrimp and boil for 3 minutes or until shrimp turn pink, stirring occasionally. Drain and rinse with cold water. Transfer to a large resealable plastic bag.
In a bowl, whisk the oil, vinegar, lime juice, jalapeno, honey, and jerk seasoning. Pour 3/4 cup marinade over shrimp. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Refrigerate remaining marinade.
Just before serving, drain and discard marinade from shrimp. On a serving platter, layer the shrimp, mango, onion and lime. Drizzle with the remaining marinade.
~~Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
~~To make your own Jamaican Jerk Seasoning, combine 2 teaspoons onion powder, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1 teaspoon ground thyme, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper.
