Coat and rub the entire ingredients into the shrimp and leave to infuse for an hour.
Preheat the dutch pot with 1-2tbsp of coconut oil on medium heat.
Using a slotted spoon lower the shrimp into the pot and stir for 2 minutes.
Add the ¼ cup of warm water, along with the annatto powder if you are using, cover lid and leave to gently steam for 10 minutes. The shrimp should be pink and ready to eat - the sauce of the shrimp should thicken as it cools.
