Jamaican Style BBQ
Most people’s mouths start to water at the sound of jerk chicken – tender chicken dry rubbed or wet marinated in hot spices and ingredients like sugar, garlic, salt and thyme. This week’s blog is on a Jamaican Style BBQ!
Originally cooked in a fire pit, jerk chicken should have a smokey flavour. This used to be achieved by cooking the chicken in a smokey fire pit but in modern days people use wood burning ovens, oil barrels or steel drums.
Here’s a recipe for jerk chicken seasoning
Jerk Seasoned Corn on the Cob
Make extra jerk seasoning and rub it on some corn on the cob! Quick, easy and delicious!
Jamaicans call this “rice and peas”. A simple side dish of long grain rice, kidney beans and loads of flavour from lime juice, ginger and coconut milk. See recipe here.
