Yummy. I cut down on the cayenne a lot, since what I have is African bird pepper and has 90,000 heat units... I think I used about 1/4 tsp and it was still kickin'. I followed Cookgirl's suggestion and used this to rub a pound of firm tofu. I was really generous with the rub and coated the tofu very well and used a full recipe for the pound. I baked the tofu at 400 for about 1/2 an hour and it turned out great. Nice and flavorful. The flavor was nice and pretty well balanced between sweet and spicy. I think it would be a great idea to marinade your meat (or tofu!) in some lime juice, then rub with this or sprinkle some lime juice over top after cooking... I did feel it needed a bit of tang. But overall, very good!
Really good, added a Scotch Bonnet to it for a real kick, Marinaded meat for 24 hours!
Excellent! My DH hates "spicy, " so I left out the cayenne, but otherwise made according to the recipe.
Very spicy stuff! Used this recipe in Jerk-Flavoured Bloody Mary. Delicious! Made for ZWT5 for the Saucy Senoritas.
Tasty and spicy! I made it just as written and used it for jerk chicken. Yum! I will definitely make this again and again.
I used this in Caribbean Chimichangas With Jamaican Pepper Sauce. It was very easy to throw together with spices that most people will have in their spice drawer. It was definitely spicy and added a wonderful zing to my chimichangas.
I used this recipe to make Nurse Di's Spicy Chicken Hoagies #77279 which was perfect as it made the exact amount I needed for that recipe. No need to by an expensive seasoning blend when this recipe works well and is delish. Thank you Sue L for sharing the recipe.
This has a great flavor and I can't wait to try it on some shrimp. Will now be a staple in the cookin household. Thanks!
Yummy! I couldn't find any Jerk seasoning to buy so I tried this recipe. I actually had everything in my cupboard, so it's nice that it is made with everyday ingredients. I was a little nervous about the heat, so cut down on the cayenne a bit, but will probably be bolder next time. I have to try this seasoning on lots of different things!
A good, all purpose jerk seasoning for many recipes. I decrease the amount of salt by at least half, sometimes eliminating it all together. I like that it's a dry rub so that I can prepare a bigger batch that can be saved in my spice cupboard for later use. I use this jerk recipe in MEAN'S picadillo Cubano Chicken with Spicy Currant Picadillo every time. Try it on tofu! MMMmmm!! Also wonderful for gift giving. I make up different spice mixes for friends and family for the Holidays and use only as much salt as I want. They appreciate that. Thanks, Sue L. Keep up the good work! CG ;)
