The flavors of this shrimp roll were amazing. Felt like I was on a tropical vacation! Grilled Jerk Shrimp Roll with Tropical Slaw Low Calorie, Low Fat, Healthy dinner

If you want flavor galore, then it is time to whip up some Jerk seasoning.  I know the list of ingredients is a tad long and can seem intimidating.  It is beyond worth it, like way, way, way beyond, to infinity and beyond.  Grilled Jerk Shrimp Roll with Tropical Fruit Slaw is a meal, not just a sandwich.  You have the robust flavors and spice of jerk seasoning on sweet, succulent grilled shrimp.  Then to give your mouth a little relief, a cool and refreshing, sweet and tangy coleslaw studded with tropical fruit.  Is your mouth-watering yet?  Oh yes, oh yes.

This lovely concoction is for Sunday Suppers Tropical themed recipes.  You could eat  tropical inspired breakfast, lunch and dinner, oh and don’t forget those Tropical cocktails, and pretend you are on vacation for a day or two.  Heck, be wild and go tropical for the weekend.  Just the thought of being on a tropical island on vacation is driving me slightly insane.  I seriously need a vacation, how about you?  I can see you nodding your head.

I feel like I have never gotten caught up on anything, since taking a break at Christmas.  That is almost five months ago, and I still feel like a hamster running on a wheel.  I am not getting caught up.  So if I feel like I’ve been running on a hamster wheel, how come I haven’t dropped  30 lbs?  I mean really, if I feel like I’ve been running non-stop, the pounds should be dropping off.  Isn’t that only fair? Ok, enough complaining.  I know it is my own fault entirely.

The flavors were amazing. Felt like I was on a tropical vacation! Grilled Jerk Shrimp Roll with Tropical Slaw Low Calorie, Low Fat, Healthy dinner

One of the things I like about Grilled Jerk Shrimp Roll with Tropical Fruit Slaw is that it feels like a fun dinner.  It is loosely based on a lobster roll and given a tropical flair.  The heat in your mouth from the spice can easily be extinguished with a tropical drink.  This Shrimp Roll is the perfect dinner to eat outside with some reggae music blasting.  Put on a pair of shorts and flip-flops, and maybe a bib.  It is a tad messy.  Sink your teeth into this delicious sandwich, and dream of sitting on a pristine beach with a cool tropical breeze flowing through your hair.  You have absolutely nothing to think about or worry about.  It’s all right, man.

  24. Jerk? I'm there!
  25. My friends came back from Jamaica raving about jerk chicken, so I really wanted to try it. I bought a spice blend, and wow is it spicy! Not sure how spicy actual jerk is, but I imagine the fruit slaw you've got going on is the perfect way to tame the heat and add even more flavor. Looks delicious!

      Hi Joy, Jerk is usually very spicy in the Islands. I did tone mine down a bit so that my daughter could eat it. She can handle a bit of spice, but nothing crazy. The slaw really does cool everything off.
  26. What a gorgeous sandwich!!
  27. Nom, nom, nom...I adore anything with Jerk seasonings. All those difference spices and seasoning keep me from making it, but I just might have to give this a try. It looks divine!
