READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by mersaydees

From Sarah Ainley’s book, The World’s Best Recipes, Caribbean section. “This dish would be perfect for supper, served on a bed of noodles or with boiled plantains.” Prep time doesn’t include 30 minutes marinating time.

I had to make this pretty bland because my husband doesn't like spicy food and the jerk seasoning I picked up definitely had a bite to it. It was very easy and fast to make. ZWT9
