"In Jamaica, the jerk method of food preparation involves seasoning meat with a sweet-hot secret mixture of peppers, tropical spices like cinnamon and allspice, rosemary and other savory herbs then slow grilling or roasting. This specially created spice blend captures the tantalizing taste of the islands in just 35 minutes."

If you want something spicier, use Busha Brown's Jamaican Jerk (it's in a jar) instead of McCormick. I tried it with that, and it was the best recipe I've found on this website.

This recipe was easy and very tasty. It was a big hit for Sunday dinner. I substituted frozen mango chunks for the pineapple because I felt that was more authentically Jamaican. I also increased the jerk seasoning to give it more kick as well as more cider vinegar and some water to give a more liquidy sauce (and to replace the liquid from the pineapple). Finally I used a green bell pepper (much cheaper than the red ones). This was delicious and easy-definitely worth a try.


I loved this recipe, it was perfect for the first dinner on our deck this year! I did change/add a few things. First of all I used a white meaty fish, Sea bass. I pan seared it then finished it off on the grill. Very tasty. I also added a jalapeno and some red onion with the red pepper. I used crushed pineapple but I think next time I will use 1/2 crushed 1/2 tidbits. This would be a great dinner to make for company. And I agree with what someone wrote earlier...double the pineapple, I am having it over chicken tonight!
