Just made this and it was delicious, really flavoursome but simple to make. I used Cod instead of Swordfish as that's what I had but it definitely needs a more robust fish.-10 May 2013

I prepared this for my family and it is very simple and quite Tasty with Outburst of flavors. everyone came back for more. very delicious.i followed the recipe strictly except that i used carp fish. its a great delight with Jasmine rice.(y)-18 Oct 2013

I made this for my family and so had to double the ingrediants. I also changed a couple of ingrediants - instead of fresh plum tomatoes I used a tin of chopped plum tomatoes and added the juice of 3 limes. Because we don't like curries too spicy I used mild Chilli powder and mild Madras Curry powder. RESULT: Fantastic, sweet and creamy with a little kick. I took what was left over to a colleague who loved it as well and wanted the recipe. Perfect with Rice and Beans-03 Sep 2013

Jamaican Curry Shrimp Recipe

Jamaican Curry Shrimp: This is truly one of my favourite quick recipes to make! It really is a 30-minute meal. Before you start, put on a pot of white rice so that it’s ready when the shrimp are. The recipe calls for a pound of raw shrimp. The ones in the photos are defrosted frozen tiger shrimp. It doesn’t matter what size you choose as long it’s a pound. I do, however, recommend at least a medium size shrimp for this recipe. The only trick to this dish is to not overcook the shrimp or they’ll become tough. Once all the ingredients are in the pan, press down on a shrimp. If it’s pink and firm, it’s ready. And, if you have to eat one to know for sure, well even better.

1 lb Raw shrimp, peeled and de-veined
½ tsp Black pepper
½ tsp Salt

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 pounds bone-in goat meat for stew (about 2-inch chunks)
  • 2 medium onions, chopped medium (about 2 cups)
  • 3 medium garlic cloves, smashed
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons Jamaican curry powder (spicy or non-spicy)
  • 2-inch piece of ginger, peeled and minced (about 2 tablespoons minced)
  • 2 to 3 habanero or Scotch bonnet peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 1 quart water or low-sodium chicken broth
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes (about 2 cups)

For the Curry: Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a 3-quart saucepan or dutch oven over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add 1/3 of goat to pan and brown on all sides, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining goat in two more batches, adding additional oil as necessary and controlling heat to prevent burning.

Return pan to heat and add onions and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently until onions are softened, about 4 minutes. Add curry powder and cook, stirring constantly until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Add ginger and pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the water or chicken broth to the pot, along with the browned meat. Add 2 teaspoons kosher salt. Scrape up any browned bits from bottom of pot. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover the pot, and cook for 1 1/2 hours. Add potatoes and continue cooking until goat is completely tender, 30 minutes to 1 hour longer.

For Serving: Skim the fat off the broth. Or, let the curry cool and place it into the refrigerator. Skim off the solidified fat on top. Warm the curry again. Season to taste with more salt, and serve.

Jamaican Cookery

March 21, 2015

Chicken curry is a popular Jamaican dish. I also using a few chicken feet. Chicken foot is used to make soup . I like using Indian curry because it is more flavourful than regular curry powder

2 lbs. chicken, skinned and any visible fat removed/washed in vinegar and water or lime and water solution, drained

1 tsp. Maggi season-up chicken flavour

1 tsp. Maggi season-up all-purpose

2 slices green scotch bonnet pepper

Piece of fresh green thyme or 1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaves

In a bowl, season chicken with all the ingredients, except, curry and oil. Cover  and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes

Put a Dutch pot with the oil on high heat. Add the curry to the hot oil, use a spoon to stir for couple seconds (cook the curry) Add the seasoned chicken in the cooked curry, stir. Cover the pot.

When the chicken begins to fry add 1 cup of water, cook the chicken until the water dissolves. Add another cup of water. Adjust the taste by adding more salt if needed. Cook the chicken until the water reduces to gravy. Remove from heat and served. Put left-over (if any) in the refrigerator, keep for 3 days.
