Peppered Shrimp is one of Jamaica’s most popular street foods. It is commonly referred to as “peppa shrimp” or “peppa swims.” The snack can be purchased from street vendors, at sporting events, on road trips, and in restaurants. The original peppered shrimp cookery is located in St. Elizabeth Parish. Scotch Bonnet peppers make the dish extremely spicy. Clearly peppered shrimp is no joke, which is evident from it bright red color.
