This is one of my favorite recipes, and it’s perfect for any night of the week. The spicy shrimp combined with the fresh crunch of the spiralized beets and fennel create a taste sensation that’s like a reggae party in your mouth! If you like extra spicy, feel free to add more Healthy On You® No Woman No Spice spice blend to the marinade.

Ingredient Graphic


  • 1 lb. wild shrimp peeled and deveined (21-30 count)
  • 1½ tsp Healthy On You® No Woman No Spice Jamaican Jerk spice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small sized beet julienned or spiralized
  • 1 fennel bulb julienned or spiralized
  • 8 small corn tortillas


  • 2 tsp (or more) Healthy On You® No Woman No Spice Jamaican Jerk spice
  • 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt/sour cream
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp sea salt and fresh ground pepper



  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the shrimp and No Woman No Spice spice blend and olive oil. Cover and refrigerate for two hours.


  1. These are couple quick suggestions for evenly cutting: If using a spiralizer, spiralize the beets and fennel and set aside.
  2. If using a mandolin, thinly shave red or yellow beets into thin rounds. Stack the rounds one inch thick, and cut thinly to make julienned strips, set aside.
  3. Cut the fennel down the center and core the center out with a sharp knife. With the outer white parts only, julienne the fennel into thin strips.


  1. combine the yogurt/sour cream, “No Woman No Spice” spice blend, lemon juice and salt in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.


  1. pre-heat broiler to 500°F. Line a baking tray with foil and add the shrimp in one layer. Broil for 10 minutes turning once. Remove from oven when the shrimp begin to turn opaque. Be careful not to overcook.
  2. Build the tacos by warming small corn tortillas. First, add a generous spread of the prepared jerk sauce to the center of the tortilla, add the shrimp on top of the sauce and top the shrimp with fennel, beets and cilantro.
  3. Serve immediately with jerk sauce on the side.

Jerk Chicken And Plantain Nacho Bowl

no woman no spice

What a way to spice it up?! This INCREDIBLE Jerk chicken bowl is just what we need to start our week off on a spicy note. If you can’t tell already, we really love plantains. Plantains are a trusted and most loved side in many Jamaican and Caribbean recipes, so we thought it was a perfect pairing with the jerked chicken-pairing spicy and sweet is always a good idea.
