  1. 24 medium shrimp with tails on, peeled and deveined
  2. 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  3. ¾ teaspoon Caribbean jerk seasoning, such as McCormick
  4. ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons guava jelly, such as Goya, divided
  5. 1 teaspoon fresh lime zest
  6. 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  7. 24 small round rice crackers
  8. 2 tablespoons finely chopped green chives
  1. In a small bowl, toss shrimp with 2 tablespoons olive oil and jerk seasoning until coated.
  2. Add remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil to a large nonstick sauté pan, and heat over medium-high heat. When oil begins to shimmer, add shrimp, and cook until they are pink and opaque, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove shrimp from pan.
  3. Reduce heat to low, and add ¼ cup guava jelly and lime zest to pan, whisking until jelly is melted. Remove pan from heat, and add shrimp, stirring and tossing to coat with sauce. Set aside.
  4. In a small saucepan, melt remaining 2 tablespoons guava jelly over low heat, stirring until smooth. Let cool slightly.
  5. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and melted guava jelly, stirring until smooth. Place cream-cheese mixture in a piping bag fitted with a large open-star tip (Wilton #1M). Pipe a rosette onto one side of crackers. Drain shrimp, and place upright on cream cheese star. Sprinkle evenly with chopped chives.
  6. Serve immediately.
  1. • Cream cheese filling can be made a day in advance, covered, and refrigerated overnight. Let come to room temperature before piping.
