"A simple and delicious jerk recipe created by the Exotic Epicureans for a ZWT3 challenge. This easy, versatile dish can also be made with pork or chicken. And it makes a wonderful vegetarian version. The spicy jerk seasoning is complimented by the sweetness of the mango papaya salsa. Times indicated are for shrimp, allow more time if using chicken or pork."

"I am afraid that I did not make the main dish part of the recipe (though hope to in the future) but made the salsa. This was the perfect, basic, mango papaya salsa recipe! It was delicious and got eaten up within the day! Can't wait to make it again as I am a big fruit salsa lover! Thanks!"
"What a wonderful recipe ... it was delicious! ... I used 1lb shrimp and potatoes with this recipe. I included avocados in the salsa and served with white rice (recipe 224663). I agree with others that this is a keeper."
"I brought this to a Jamaican theme party and it was a hit. I made the recipe as stated, with the avocado, but I chopped the shrimp into 3 pieces and added it to the salsa and served with Scoops. Definitely a different way to make salsa!"
"Excellent! Next time I will try chicken or pork. Also, for us leaving the shells on was too messy for the kids to I will likely try shelling first. This one is a keeper."
"We have a tradition in our family where we make meat on the stone. A stone that is heated in the oven then placed over burners. I usually do several meats with dips, but read this recipe and thought I would try it with shrimp and chicken. Oh my god!!! excellent my only mistake was to try and adjust heat from peppers, as my family, unlike me, does not like to much spice, went a little to mild. My son is not the greatest fan of shrimp and I did make other meats too cook and all he kept saying was where is the shrimp and chicken (in that order). Great recipe thanks for posting and we will definitely be making again. Mmmmm Delicious."
"Great! Loved the idea of putting an avocado into sweet fruit salsa. The marinade is wonderful and I plan to use it on tofu or fish next time maybe. Thanks"
"This was a big hit! It looks complicated, but is actually very easy to pull together. I made this for a family bbq and used shrimp and chicken. I used 2 scotch bonnet peppers which made it hot...but not TOO hot! Yumm..a healthy and tasty BBQ treat!"
"My husband mmmm'd his way through this recipe. I did cut way back on the heat in the marinade, since the rest of the family doesn't have a spicy palate. The salsa was a nice refreshing a compliment to the chicken I used as meat of choice. I used my grill pan to cook the thighs. Delicious. Made for ZWT 3. :)"
"I made this for ZWT3- I changed it just a bit. I made the marinade and used Chicken and veggies- green pepper, sweet potato, onion and pineapple. I added a bit of pineapple juice to the marinade as well. I then sauteed the chicken and veggies and served it over brown rice with the salsa. Very good. I'm a big fan of Jerk seasoning and this was very nice."
"This was really good"
