Jamaica and Mexico collide when Jerk Shrimp Tacos are prepared. This cultural hybrid recipe from the Closet Cooking blog offers a plethora of flavors in one tasty dish.

Jerk sauce is a spicy seasoning commonly found on the island of Jamaica. Usually reserved for chicken, this recipe uses the Caribbean hot sauce on jumbo shrimp. After marinating the shrimp in jerk sauce, Mexican influence is added with a warm and crispy tortilla casing. Furthering the Latin flavor, this dish also features a pineapple salsa and pina colada crema.

Jerk Shrimp Tacos are found to be far more spicy and flavorful than the usual shrimp tacos. Though this delectable hybrid dish can stand alone, it also pairs well with a fruity mimosa or margarita.
