Jerk recipe

This way of cooking has invaded restaurants and cafés worldwide, adding a hint of Jamaica to cocktail parties and backyard cookouts. Just about any meat can be “jerked,” but the real secret is in the marinade, a truly Jamaican blend of spices and seasonings.

1 dash of ground nutmeg

1 dash of mace

1 pinch of salt

1 pinch of black pepper

2 tsps. ground Jamaican pimento

2 cups of chopped green onions

2 onions

2 hot Scotch Bonnet peppers

2 tbsp vegetable oil

Finely chop onions, peppers, and green onions. Blend all ingredients (preferably in a blender or food processor), pour mixture on chicken, pork, fish or beef and let marinate overnight (or at least for two hours). Grill meat slowly over hot coals until cooked. Yields 12 servings.
