Jerk Shrimp

Jerk Shrimp

Ingredients…

  • 1 pound large shrimp (16/20 or 21/25)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • ½ cup scallions, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground pimento (allspice)
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 hot pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • ¼ cup cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar (cider or white)

Instructions…

01Place all the ingredients (except the shrimp, of course) in a food processor fitted with the steel blade and process until everything is well combined. Store the leftover marinade in the refrigerator in a tightly closed jar for about 1 month.

02In a large bowl season the shrimp with a generous amount of jerk seasoning. Let sit for 20 minutes.

03Preheat a a saute pan with a little bit of olive oil. Add shrimp and cook about 5 minutes a side. If you want to grill, thread the shrimp on a BBQ skewer and alternate with pineapple and red onion.

04Serve the shrimp as an appetizer with lime wedges, and crusty bread… or serve it with rice and vegetables (or a crispy salad) for a main.

Jerk cooking - Honey Jerk Wings

Jerked Wings with a Honey Rum Glaze

  • 2 ½ Pounds wings, trimmed and separated
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • ½ Cup prepared jerk seasoning
  • Salt generously
  • 1 Cup honey
  • ¼ Cup dark rum
  • Preheat oven to 400 F.

Wash the wings with lime juice. In a large non-reactive bowl rub the wings with jerk seasoning and salt generously. Cover and marinade for half an hour (remember the longer the wings marinade, the hotter they will become). Place wings on a greased baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes turning once until nicely browned.

While the chicken is baking, make the glaze by combining the honey and rum, mixing until the rum is incorporated into the honey. Set aside until the wings are cooked through. When the wings are done pour the glaze over the wings, place on a platter, and serve.
