Spicy Shrimps

Hi y'all, yes I know I  have been very inactive and I apologize for that. I promise to do better this year even though its already end of March.
 Today I want to share a very simple recipe with you all, because y'all know I love simple foods(HAHA). I originally made this as an appetizer for a friend but then I had it with kenkey and fried fish and I figured what a diverse side this was.


  • 1lb of shrimps(head on, in shell)
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon seasoning salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon of oil


  1. Wash the shrimps and soak in water and vinegar for about 5mins(this method is optional but I often do it just to remove the fishy/sea-ish smell that often comes with shrimps)
  2. Season the shrimps with all the spices and set aside for about 30mins-1hr, depending on how much time you have to spare
  3. In a frying pan, add the oil and fry shrimps, when the shrimps begin to change color, add in your lemon juice and allow the shrimps to cook  until its well done,stirring occassionally(refer to pictures below for well done shrimps pictures)
  4. And basically that is pretty much it. Serve as an appetizer or as a side to your dish
PS: Will update with more pictures, the next time I make this.

Different lightening, different color this was clearly served as an appetizer with the beef kebabs
