These shrimp on a skewer are easy to make and in no time you will be sharing and enjoying these spicy shrimp with friends and loved ones. This homemade jerk seasoning/marinade is made with allspice, Scotch Bonnet peppers and white onion. The Scotch Bonnet peppers were de-seeded as these peppers are very spicy. Feel free to leave the seeds in if you like really spicy food. Other flavors include cinnamon, nutmeg, thyme, ginger and cumin. Brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic and lime juice provided an added depth of flavor to the overall flavor profile of these Jerk Shrimp skewers!
