Throwback Thursday: Caribbean Shrimp w/ Peppers & Lime
It’s Thursday again, wow these weeks have been flying by. My recipe for this Throwback Thursday really brings me back. This was one of the first “unique” recipes I learned and one of the ones that really got me excited about cooking. I am excited to share it with you, since it kind of hit a soft spot in me (I know cheesy, but it is what it is).
This recipe is so simple, but so good. I make it a lot without the coconut milk, but it is extremely good with coconut milk as well if you have the extra money to buy it! I recommend using a lot of lime, it just makes it even better. I hope that this recipe can get you excited to cook like it did for me! Also, thanks to my mom for these photos. =)

Looks simple and delicious! I love coconut milk so I would totally add it! I bet it’s nice and creamy- perfect sauce to mop up with rice!

Look at this dish, it looks great! I love a shrimp skillet dish. Sadly, the BF does dont. Would chicken work well in here as well with the shrimp?
This looks scrumptious!

Wow, that’s one bright dish of vegetables. The ingredients sound so fresh and summery. A great way for us to get ready for the season coming up (especially when we can’t take a trip to the Caribbean!).
