Jerk-Spiced Shrimp

1 T. Sugar
1 T. Paprika
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. ground red pepper
1/4 t. ground thyme
1/8 t. ground allspice
2 T. olive oil
1-1/2 pounds shrimp - peeled & deveined

Mix shrimp with olive oil. Combine first seven ingredients, mixing well, and add to shrimp. At this point - you can place shrimps on skewers and barbeque, or make shrimp fajitas. For fajitas, over high heat, add a little olive oil, onions, peppers, garlics, mushrooms (any thing you like) and stir fry until slightly blackened. Add a little more olive oil, add shrimp and stir fry until the shrimp is opaque. It doesn't take very long. Serve in tortillas or over rice. This is a low calorie, 260 calories per serving, recipe. And it is delicious! Get creative and add to your favorite salad or recipe.
