This recipe is a result of the Zaar World Tour 2007 for the Caribbean Grilling/Jerk Challenge. Our team - The Devilishly Devious Diners - created this recipe with help and ingredients from all the members. We've included beef, chicken and shrimp but feel free to add or delete any of the different meats. We used our very own ellie_'s Jamaican Spice Mixture for the jerk seasoning. It was very good accompanied by a long grain and wild rice mixture as well as mama's kitchen Delish Sweet Potato "fries" Low Fat The rum soaked fruit is our devious contribution to this great recipe!

Outstanding! I used shrimp only, and I honestly did not miss the other meats. I also skipped the rice. The flavor from the marinade is incredible. I followed the recipe for that part exactly, using Ellie's Jamaican Spice Mixture for the seasoning. This is sure to become a summer staple for me, and I like that I can switch up the proteins and it'll still be delicious. Thanks so much!!
