Caribbean style stewed shrimp!

Hello dear friends!!

Today I bring you a very Caribbean, very Dominican, very simple and very flavorful dish. Caribbean people love to have something to dipp in the sauce when we make a sauce rich dish. Today I coupled the dish with some nice tostones, but a nice little white rice would have done the trick just fine also!


  • ½ pound of shrimp.
  • 2 spoonfuls of butter.
  • 1 spoonful of garlic paste.
  • ½ white onion.
  • A bit of oregano.
  • A bit of of black pepper.
  • 1 spoonful of paprika.
  • 1 red sweet bell pepper.
  • 1 ripe tomato (big)
  • A bit of salt.


Chop the onion and the red bell pepper. Heat the butter and lightly fry the onion and the bell pepper, adding the other ingredients gradually (tomato, garlic, pepper, paprika, etc.) allow to cook for about two minutes, add some water and allow to cook a little more.

Then add the shrimp and give them about thirty seconds in the very hot sauce. Take them out and serve them with some tostones, as I did.

Remember that shrimps should not be left for long in the fire because they overcook easily, they shrink and are no longer as enjoyable.
