Why We Love Key West Pink Shrimp

These aren’t your average shrimp; they’ve got more charm and flavor than a pirate has tales. Sourced straight from the sun-kissed waters of Key West and the surrounding Gulf of Mexico waters, these shrimp are the real deal. They’re the stars of our “Key West Cajun Curry Shrimp” show, bringing a taste of the sea that’s as fresh as a sea breeze. Let’s give a round of applause (or should we say a wave?) to these delightful crustaceans that aren’t just delicious but also a nod to our love for local, top-notch seafood.

Jokes aside, the Key West Pinks are extremely flavorful and much more rich than your average cocktail shrimp. They are also generally larger and make for great cooking.

The Fusion of Flavors: Cajun and Curry

Welcome to the culinary crossroads where Cajun meets Curry – it’s less of a handshake and more of a high-five on your taste buds! Let’s start with Cajun seasoning, a blend that’s as lively and spirited as a New Orleans jazz band. It’s a mix that marches to the beat of garlic, paprika, and a bunch of herbs and spices that aren’t afraid to get a little spicy.

Then there’s curry, the globetrotting superstar of spices. It’s like the well-traveled uncle in your spice cabinet, bringing stories from distant lands straight to your kitchen. Curry doesn’t just add flavor; it adds a passport stamp of deliciousness to any dish.

When these two get together in our Key West Cajun Curry Shrimp, it’s a fusion that’s more exciting than finding a hidden treasure on a deserted island. It’s a flavor party, and your palate is invited to dance the night away!


  1. Preparation:
    • Begin by preparing your ingredients: chop the onion, mince the garlic, and dice the red bell pepper. Keep your Key West Pink Shrimp at hand, ready for the spotlight.
  2. Sauté the Aromatics:
    • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic, sautéing until they become fragrant and golden – about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the Bell Pepper:
    • Stir in the red bell pepper and continue to sauté for another 2-3 minutes, until it starts to soften. This adds a sweet, colorful touch to your dish.
  4. Season Generously:
    • Sprinkle in the Cajun seasoning and curry powder, giving the mix a good stir. Let the spices toast slightly to unleash their full flavors – it’s like a mini carnival in your skillet.
  5. Shrimp Time:
    • Add the Key West Pink Shrimp to the skillet. Cook them for about 2 minutes on each side, or until they turn pink and opaque. Remember, these shrimp are the stars of the show, so treat them with care.
  6. Creamy Coconut Milk:
    • Pour in the coconut milk and stir well. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 5 minutes. The sauce should thicken slightly, embracing the shrimp in a creamy, flavorful hug.
  7. Season and Serve:
    • Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as needed. Remember, it’s all about balance – like a tightrope walker in a flavor circus.
  8. Garnish and Enjoy:
    • Finally, sprinkle some fresh cilantro over the top for a burst of color and freshness. Serve your Key West Cajun Curry Shrimp over a bed of warm, fluffy rice. It’s not just a meal; it’s a voyage to flavor paradise!

This Key West Cajun Curry Shrimp is more than just a dish; it’s a delicious journey through taste and tradition, starring the best of the sea and spice world. Bon Appétit!
