Floribbean Shrimp

I found an AWESOME recipe that I wanted to share with you all. Introducing Floribbean Shrimp & Snap Peas with Island Rice. These are flavors I haven't had a lot of experience with, but DEFINITELY want to know more of in the future. Try it out!

Floribbean Shrimp
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
4 drops liquid smoke flavoring
1 teaspoon lemon pepper
1/8 teaspoon curry powder
1 pound peeled/deveined large shrimp (thawed, if needed)
1 tablespoon garlic butter


1. Combine all ingredients (except shrimp and garlic butter) in medium bowl.
2. Pat shrimp dry and stir into mixture; let stand 10 minutes to marinate. Wash hands.
3. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Place butter in pan; swirl to coat. (Pan should sizzle.) Add shrimp; cook 4–5 minutes, stirring frequently, or just until shrimp turn pink and opaque. Serve over rice.

P.S. I use the remaining marinade plus a dab of butter to saute the snap peas in.

Island Rice:

1 cup water
1 (6-ounce) can pineapple juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon curry powder
1/8 teaspoon allspice (optional)
black pepper, to taste
2 cups instant rice


1. Combine all ingredients (except rice) in medium saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil on high.
2. Stir rice into boiling mixture. Cover and remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes or until water is absorbed. Serve.
