Jerk Chicken

Jerk chicken and pork are quintessential Jamaican cuisine. Jerk is a style of cooking in which meat is dry-rubbed or wet-marinated with a hot spice mixture called Jamaican jerk spice (allspice and Scotch bonnet peppers). This spice mixture can be applied to fish, shrimp, shellfish, beef, sausage, lamb or tofu.
