Ingredients

Spicy Salsa

  • 6 tomatoes
  • 1-2 jalapeno peppers, chopped (add more or less depending on how spicy you like it)
  • 6 scallions, green part only, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 3 tbs garlic infused olive oil (or regular olive oil if preferred)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Jumbo Shrimp

  • 2.5 lbs cooked jumbo shrimp
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges
  • 1 large handful parsley, chopped

Method

Spicy Salsa

  • Place your tomatoes in a blender. Pulse a few times until chopped but not fully blended.
  • Next, add the jalapeno peppers, scallions and green bell pepper. Pulse a few times until chopped.
  • Add the cilantro, olive oil, lime juice and cumin. Pulse to blend to your desired consistency. If you like a chunkier salsa, blitz for less time. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour into a bowl and refrigerate for at least an hour, or until required.

To Serve

  • When ready to serve, place the cooked shrimp on a large platter and scatter with the chopped parsley and slices of lemon. Serve with the spicy salsa to one side (sprinkled with chopped cilantro if desired) and plenty of napkins for sticky fingers.
