Dry Jerk Spice Rub

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by ES4VOLS1

Traditional in Jamaican kitchens, jerk seasoning packs a hot punch that is mellowed by the sweetness of sugar and perfume of spices such as cinnamon and allspice. To tame the heat, cut back on the ground red pepper. You can use this rub with pork, chicken, or fish. I used the rub on pork and it was wonderful!!

Top Review by zaar junkie

An easy spice mix to put together. I subbed fennel seeds for the anise and used 2 tsp of the cayenne. I think this would be wonderful on meat and/or tofu. I tried Recipe #59182 and it was a bit too hot for my bf. Next time I'll reduce the cayenne to 1 tsp. This has great flavor. Thanks so much.
