Jamaican goat curry is a national dish. Shows the Indian influence in Jamaica. Tasty served with rice and peas and fried plantain.
An aromatic and authentic Jamaican curry powder without chilli, which should be added separately to any dish. For authentic Jamaican flavour, Scotch Bonnet chillies are typically added to most spicy recipes. You can also use ground versions of any of the spices here, but for better flavour start with whole.
This recipe is a MUST for rum lovers! If you don't like rum, then substitute another spirit, eg brandy.
These fried buttery fritters are typically served with saltfish in Jamaica as part of a weekend breakfast feast. You can serve these as a side to your favourite Jamaican meal.
Because the flavour of chicken is quite mild, it benefits from a tasty baste when barbecued or grilled, and this also helps to keep the outside from burning until the chicken is cooked through – especially when cooking over charcoal. This recipe is for a spicy Jamaican jerk baste, and there are four more deliciously different ideas.
A spicy Jamaican paste, made with fiery chillies, fragrant allspice and thyme, flavours and tenderises the pork steaks in this dish. They are served with wedges of juicy pineapple and corn cobs, all cooked under the grill. Serve with toasted French bread.
This is a traditional Jamaican dish I was taught to cook by my grandmother.
Jerk seasoning is a simple way to enliven grilled chicken and transforms this salad into a spicy, refreshing taste sensation. Enjoy it while the chicken is still warm.

A fantastic recipe that uses an aromatic array of chillies, herbs and spices. This marinade is also delicious with pork fillet, ribs and chicken.
This is a Jamaican-inspired dish combining the flavours of barbecued jerk chicken with a lovely jerk-flavoured cream sauce, all tossed with pasta. If desired, you can cook the chicken breasts under the grill or in a ridged griddle pan.
A simple curry, which is packed full of flavour. Potatoes are simmered with chicken in a Jamaican spiced curry. Enoy with peas and rice, if desired.
I'm only 15 so if I can make it you can too. Homemade pastry is used to encase a mouth-watering mixture of mince and spices. Perfect for packed lunches or picnics, or serve for supper as you would any pie.
An easy homemade Jamaican jerk sauce of soy, lime, orange juice and lots of spices makes a mouthwatering marinade for barbecued chicken.
A Jamaican classic. The meat is slowly braised in its own juices to create the most tender pork. The potato and peppers add dimension to the dish. Serve with rice or bread.
