Jerk Butter Shrimp Boil

Many of my recipe ideas come from me deciding to make something for myself at home. This week I had a few potatoes , some frozen corn , and a bag of shrimp. Rather than a classic shrimp boil with Cajun spices , I thought to myself “what If I made it with jerk seasoning “. I threw it together and posted it on my Instagram feed and asked if I should make it a recipe. I got such a huge response, and I decided that it definitely had to be a blog recipe. This recipe is spicy , delicious, and full of flavor. It combines garlic, bell peppers, green onion and jerk seasoning that really make this dish come alive. I used the spicy version of this jerk seasoning but they do sell a mild version of it so please grab that if you are not a fan of spicy food. As always , please let me know how it came out for you and enjoy !
