A yours truly original. Inspired by a love for the step in making cookies where you mash brown sugar with the butter. —TakeThymeToCook

What You'll Need
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margerine
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 10-12 large shrimp
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tablespoons tropical spice powder (curry, paprika, pepper)
  • 1/2 red pepper (optional)
  • 2 servings of cooked brown or wild rice

  4. Add remaining butter and melt. Stir in brown sugar.
