Jerk Shrimp & Veggies

Jerk Shrimp & Veggies

Jerk Shrimp & Veggies is a simple meal I threw together one night using what I had on hand. I’d never tried cooking shrimp sous vide or jerked, and this more than exceeded my expectations.

Gather the ingredients.

Let’s go to work.

  1. Combine the salt and sugar, then sprinkle over the shrimp in a bowl.
  2. Toss shrimp until evenly coated and let sit for 10-15 minutes to cure.
  3. While waiting for the shrimp, combine the jerk seasoning with the oil in a Ziploc bag and mix well.
  4. Remove the cure by gently rinsing shrimp in cold water.
  5. Add shrimp to the bag and move them around until covered evenly in the jerk paste.
  6. Now, arrange the shrimp into an even layer in the bag — overlapping results in uneven cooking.
  7. Cook the shrimp sous vide at 140°F for 15 minutes.
  8. ‘Nuff said! Remove the Jerk Shrimp from the bag and serve hot, or chill and serve cold.
