Romantic Dinner Recipe: Jamaican Inspired Curry Shrimp and Scallops

Jamaican Curry Shrimp and Scallops

This quick, one-pot, Jamaican Curry Shrimp and Scallops recipe is a perfect dish to make for your significant other, after a long day at work. It’s tasty, yet fancy and easy to make. It only takes a maximum of 30 minutes to make this delicious dish. To save time, I always chop the vegetables the night or morning before I plan to make this meal. If I’m planning to use fresh Tiger Shrimp, I peel and devein the shrimps ahead of time as well. Before you start this recipe, you should start a pot of rice so that the rice and curry are ready at the same time.  Remember that the seafood should go during the last five minutes to avoid overcooking.
