Jerk Chicken Wings
These jerk chicken wings were so flavorful, so different, and so additively delicious, that I may have eaten my last Buffalo wing. Okay, I didn't mean that, but these really are amazing; a perfect balance of sweet, sour, salty, and spicy. I'm usually pretty casual about you changing my recipes, but I'm going to have to insist you not change any of the key ingredients, which are, every one of them.
We Be Jammin' Jamaican Banana Bread
Delicious and exotic twist on the common and bland banana bread. So good you will never bake another run-of-the-mill banana bread! Serve and watch the happy faces!
Jamaican Spinach Soup
This soup is oh-so yummy, easy to make, and the aromas will make your mouth water. Serve with some crusty bread. Freezes well, so it's excellent for lunches and leftovers (not that there will be any left).
Vegetarian Jamaican Jerk Burrito
Tofu, cheese, rice, black beans, pineapple, jicama, and a Jamaican jerk sauce in a flour tortilla, topped with hot salsa and sour cream.
Jamaican Curry Powder
An authentic Jamaican curry powder without hot pepper, which should be added separately to any dish. You can also use powdered versions of any of the ingredients, but for better flavor use whole seed. For authentic Jamaican flavor, you will usually add Scotch Bonnet or Habanero peppers to your recipes. However, if you want to add heat directly to the powder, add 2-4 tablespoons cayenne powder to the mix, depending on your taste.
Jamaican Saltfish Fritters (Stamp and Go)
A popular Jamaican appetizer. Just stamp them out in the kitchen, take some for the road and go! Saltcod can be prepared the day before for a quicker cook time. These are also good served with a spicy dipping sauce.
Boscobel Beach Ginger Cake
This is a Jamaican cake. It attracted rave reviews at my church Valentine's tea party. It has been a mainstay at prayer breakfasts too.
Spicy Shrimp Skewers
This spicy, sweet, tropical recipe is perfect for summer grilling. Serve with seasoned rice and margaritas.
Jamaican Brown Stew Chicken
Chef John's sweet, savory, and spicy take on Jamaican brown stew chicken.
Jamaican Fried Dumplings
Flat fried buttery dough usually served with cod fish in Jamaica, as a big weekend breakfast, slightly different from the American dumplings.
Jamaican Fried Snapper
We cooked this traditional 'escovitch' dish of fried fish with my grandmother the night before church, so we could serve it after the service the next day at a large communal meal.
