Caribbean fish and shrimp stew.

Caribbean food does not have any tameness to it. On the contrary, it bursts with flavour and tantalises every taste bud.

We like to spice things up, we like to create memorable meals, and we believe that good food feeds the soul.

A good stew is important to us. Whether it is stew peas, stew pork or stew beef, we tend to change it up and create magic in the kitchen.

Here is a quick and easy fish and shrimp stew recipe that you can prepare for yourself or for family get-togethers. Feel free to mix it up with other seafood products, like conch and scallops.

•1/2lb SeaBest shrimp, peeled and deveined
