Chillies and turmeric boost 20-minute shrimp stir-fry Loop Jamaica

Weeknight ease married to plump texture and briny sweetness. It’s why shrimp is one of our staple go-to dinner solutions.

Simply stir-fry a few aromatics and spices until fragrant, toss in the shrimp, and dinner is on the table in 20 minutes.

We had that in mind for a “dry” but intensely flavoured stir-fry recipe from our book COOKish, which limits recipes to just six ingredients without sacrificing flavour.

Drawing on the flavours of Malaysia and Indonesia, cuisines that blend Indian, Chinese and Southeast Asian influences, this stir-fry features earthy turmeric, fresh chillies and curry leaves.

Curry leaves have an inimitable flavour that’s citrusy yet also savoury. Include them if you can (they’re sold in most Indian grocery stores), but if not available, the stir-fry is still great without.

You also could substitute dill for a different but still delicious flavour. For those with timid palates, use the smaller amount of chilli and be sure to seed them.

A single tablespoon of fish sauce is the only liquid, but it ties the dish together with a savoury hit of umami.

We like sprinkling the finished dish with chopped cilantro if it’s on hand, and serving it with steamed rice.

Stir-Fried Turmeric Shrimp with Shallots and Chilies

Start to finish: 20 minutes

Servings: 4


1 1/2 lbs extra-large (21/25 per pound) shrimp, peeled, deveined and patted dry

Kosher salt and ground black pepper

3 tbsps neutral oil

8 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced

3 large shallots, sliced into thin rings (about 2 cups)

8 to 10 curry leaves (optional)

1 tsp ground turmeric

2 to 4 Fresno OR serrano chillies, stemmed, seeded and chopped OR Thai bird chillies, stemmed but kept whole OR dried ?rbol chillies, broken in half

1 tbsp fish sauce


Season the shrimp with salt and pepper. In a 12-inch skillet over medium, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the garlic, shallots and curry leaves (if using); cook, stirring, until slightly softened and lightly browned. Add the turmeric and cook, stirring, just until fragrant and the oil takes on a yellowish hue. Increase to high and add the shrimp. Cook, stirring often until lightly browned but not fully cooked. Add the chillies, fish sauce and 1/4 cup water. Cook, stirring often until the shrimp are lightly sauced and opaque throughout. If desired and if used, remove and discard the curry leaves and whole chillies. Season with salt and pepper.

Optional garnish: Fresh cilantro OR sliced scallions OR lime wedges OR chopped roasted cashews OR a combination.

Oregon World Championships finalist Stephenie-Ann McPherson secured her spot in the women’s 400m final after finishing second in the first of two semifinal heats on the opening day of the three-day championships on Friday.

McPherson completed the one-lap event in 51.65 seconds as Bahamian two-time Olympic and World champion Shaunae Miller-Uibo won the race easily in 50.84 seconds, the quickest time over the heats.

McPherson’s 51.65 represents the fourth fastest in the heats. Kyra Constantine completed the automatic qualifiers from the first semifinal heat. She finished third in 51.93 seconds.

McPherson’s compatriot Junelle Bromfield finished the second semifinal in 51.75 seconds to advance on time.

Sada Williams of Barbados, the Commonwealth Games champion and the bronze medalist from the Oregon World Championships is the second-fastest qualifier for Saturday’s final, winning the second semi-final heat in 51.48 seconds.

The Chinese billionaire who invested in WIOC jailed for 13 years

Xiao Jianhua, a Chinese-Canadian billionaire at the centre of an alleged abduction scandal in Hong Kong in 2017, has been sentenced by a Shanghai court to 13 years in prison and his company fined a record 55.03bn yuan (£6.8bn).

Xiao, 50, and his Tomorrow Holdings conglomerate were charged with illegally absorbing public deposits, betraying the use of entrusted property, and the illegal use of funds and bribery, the Shanghai first intermediate court said.

Xiao was also fined 6.5m yuan for the crimes, the Shanghai court said, accusing him and Tomorrow of “severely violated financial management order” and “hurt state financial security”.

From 2001 to 2021, Xiao and Tomorrow gave shares, real estate, cash and other assets to government officials totalling more than 680m yuan, to evade financial supervision and seek illegitimate interests, the court said.

Born in China and educated in the country’s top institution, Peking University, Xiao was known to have links to the country’s Communist party elite. But he has not been seen in public since 2017 after he was investigated amid a state-led conglomerate crackdown.

A reclusive figure, Xiao’s massive business fortune was turned upside down in January 2017 when he was whisked out of Hong Kong’s Four Seasons hotel in a wheelchair allegedly by plainclothes Chinese security agents, who at the time were not permitted to operate in Hong Kong.

He was taken across the border into China, possibly by boat to avoid immigration checks, according to a report in the New York Times.

Hong Kong police said at the time that he had crossed the border into mainland China. Tomorrow also said he was on the mainland. Still, the episode rocked Hong Kong at a time of increased influence from Beijing. Two years earlier, five Hong Kong booksellers disappeared from various locations in Asia and resurfaced in mainland China.

In the years since his disappearance, Xiao’s business empire had been restructured. In July 2020, nine of the group’s related institutions were seized by Chinese regulators as part of a crackdown on risks posed by financial conglomerates. A few months later, state-owned investment firm China Chengtong Holdings Group said it would acquire a majority stake in a securities firm linked to Tomorrow Group.

But news of Xiao’s fate did not begin to emerge until this year. Last month he was finally put on trial, more than five years after his alleged abduction.

Afirman que es más conveniente esperar a que expire el contrato de LUMA Energy que culminarlo inmediatamente

El experto en la Ley Promesa, el licenciado Rolando Emanuelli, afirmó en RADIO ISLA que es mejor esperar que el contrato de LUMA Energy expire el 30 de noviembre , que culminarlo de forma inmediata.

“ El contrato suplementario vence , lo dice claramente la cláusula. Sin ningún tipo de decreto, no tiene que haber ninguna intervención de un arbitro ni de un tribunal. El contrato se acaba y entra en vigor entonces las cláusulas de salida de LUMA, porque el contrato contempla un proceso para que LUMA se vaya y eso es lo más rápido que puede lograrse para terminar el asunto con LUMA, porque si se cancela el contrato (de manera inmediata) hay que enviar un aviso con 120 días de antelación “, afirmó el experto.

“ Nos coge diciembre en el proceso y luego vendría la transición. En este caso que expire  el contrato, pues meramente entra en vigor por los términos y condiciones y no hay ninguna controversia, entonces LUMA tiene que iniciar el trámite para la transición de su salida”, culminó.

Since its introduction to the electronic payment landscape in December 2021, Lynk, Jamaica’s first digital wallet, has recorded more than $500 million in transactions on the platform.

The Lynk App presently provides an opportunity for individuals, small and medium businesses to be able to pay and receive payments using a smartphone.

Chief Growth Officer at Lynk, Denise Williams, said Lynk allows you to take the money that is in your physical wallet and put it on your phone in an App, so that you can do business using your phone, instead of cash, debit and credit cards.

“It is an evolving App that is on a journey to becoming a super App that is relevant to the Jamaican context,” Williams argued.

Lynk is a payment platform that is used to exchange money, pay for goods and services. It can also be used to top up mobile phones and pay utility bills.

Meanwhile, Chief Product Officer, Lynk, John Matthew Sinclair, said the main objective of Lynk is to provide financial inclusion for all Jamaicans and to create easy access to the digital platform.

He described the registration process as easy. Interested individuals must have a smartphone. For registration, they will need a mobile number, an email address and a valid Jamaican ID (driver’s licence, passport, voters’ registration, Tax Registration Number).

Once your registration is validated you have access to more than 70 billers, you can send money and top up your mobile any time of the day.

Come October 2022, as Lynk continues to evolve and revolutionise, customers will have access to merchants online. The Merchant Platform will be launched, and this will allow small to large merchants to interact with their customers wherever they are online. By year end (December), Lynk will also launch a Remittance platform.

Lynx is regulated by the Bank of Jamaica (BOJ). Currently, National Commercial Bank offers JAM-DEX through LYNK(R), its digital wallet.
