Fry onions, scotch bonnet pepper, garlic cloves. 4. Add chopped carrots and fry till moderately tender. 5. Add raw shrimps and fry till pink. 6. Add diced mixed bell peppers. 7. Add spices - thyme/rosemary leaf, knorr cubes, all purpose seasoning, salt to taste. 8. Add spinach in stages and stir. It tends to shrink so don’t worry about the size of your pan/pot. 9. Taste for salt and adjust.
