Accras with Shrimp- Caribbean fritters
Why I Love This Recipe
This is a recipe i found on http://www.islandflave.com/recipes under Trinidad recipes. I was part of a pot luck group in Dallas and we had Caribbean food night. I tried this and it was a big hit. I only used one habanero pepper and thought it needed a little more spice so you might wanna try two.
