  • Dice the onion on a chopping board. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the carrots and cut them into thin rings.
    Make sure the frozen sweet peppers are thawed and at room temperature. Place them aside.
  • In a larger aluminum pot, heat oil for about 2 minutes. Brown the shrimp for about 1 minute on each side.

  • Open the can of coconut milk and combine it with ½ cup of warm water in the same mixing dish where the shrimp has been marinating.
    The coconut milk will become reddish-brown. This is due to the residue of smoked paprika and jerk seasoning.
  • Mix in the diced onions, sliced carrots, sweet peppers, and pimento seeds with a wooden spoon. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes.
