How to Make Jamaican jerk spice
Dennis McIntosh shows viewers how to make jerk spiced seafood. Jerk is native to Jamaica and was once a way to preserve meat. It is now enjoyed as a spicy marinade and sauce to accompany most any protein. Jerk spices include ginger, thyme, scotch bonnet peppers, scallion, onion, nutmeg, and pimento berries. In food processor or blender, add ingredients with oil and blend on low speed. Next, add garlic, salt, cinnamon, pepper, and sugar. Pour marinade over fish and toss to coat. Add to hot pan and cook until medium-well done. Some find this spicy and you can remove the seeds of the peppers to help control the heat. The jerk seafood pairs well with pasta or garden salad and bread or rolls.
