I knew I would love this when I first saw it. This dish tastes amazing! It was incredibly flavorful and very different. I made my own Jamaican jerk spice using Rita's Recipe #156341. Thanks for the lovely recipe!

Very tasty! I really enjoyed the complexity of flavors created from so few ingredients. I would have loved it more if I had eaten it under a palapa on some small caye. Maybe next time.

If you like spicy, this is it. Very flavorful, different and easy. I did have to sub a few things as I was too lazy to go to the market. I used mild Rotel tomatoes for the zesty, used Chia's Jerk Seasoning recipe #91493 for the jerk seasoning and sour cream for the yogurt. This was tasty and you must have the topping as it really makes the dish.
