I love Caribbean flavors in food. In American cuisine, it seems so often we place spices into one of two categories: savory or sweet. But, with Caribbean spices they do no such thing! I grew up thinking cinnamon was only used in desserts and salt was only used in savory foods. Boy, was I wrong! 

This simple marinade recipe combines aromatic spices and coconut milk! I chose to use it to marinate shrimp, but it would be great on any kind of meat or veggies, or used as a sauce on top of a veggie and quinoa bowl. 


1 T
Garlic Powder
2 t
Cayenne Pepper
1 t
Dried Oregano
2 t
Dried Parsley
2 t
Coconut Sugar
1 t
salt (more to taste)
1 t
Dried Paprika
1 t
Ground Allspice
1⁄2 t
Black Pepper
1⁄4 t
Ground Nutmeg
1 cn
Whole Fat Coconut Milk


Mix all dry ingredients together.

Next, add coconut milk (you may add more or less coconut milk depending on how strong you want the seasoning, I like mine to be pretty strong). 

Add to anything you like as a marinade or sauce! 




This looks fabulous!

Thanks! It's really spicy and yummy!
