Hibiscus is commonly known in Colombia as “flor de Jamaica” (Jamaican flower), so it must have been brought from Jamaica by the Spaniards. In Colombia, we use it mostly to prepare fresh juice, the same way the Corozo Juice is prepared. In this recipe, the antioxidant properties and vitamins of the juice are added to the sautéed shrimp.
