Take a trip to the Caribbean with Jamaican recipes like jerk chicken, Jamaican ginger cake and Jamaican chicken curry.
I just love patties and here's a traditional recipe that beats the commercial stuff you buy from most West Indian takeaways or the stuff you buy in packets that gives you next to no amount of meat. This recipe depends on the amount of heat that you like. I personally would add 5 Scotch bonnet peppers to my mixture but typically you should add 1 to 2 Scotch bonnet peppers.
An easy homemade Jamaican jerk sauce of soy, lime, orange juice and lots of spices makes a mouthwatering marinade for barbecued chicken.
This is the recipe for Jamaican Hard Do Bread (hard dough bread). You'll love this simple white bread that is just slightly sweet. Enjoy this like you would any other white loaf.
This recipe is a MUST for rum lovers! If you don't like rum, then substitute another spirit, like brandy.
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.
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 very easy and warming stew that is perfect for the slow cooker. Easily tweaked according to your own taste and preferences. You can omit the salmon and have it as a vegetarian meal and adjust the amount of pepper depending on how hot you like it. I put this on in the morning before leaving for work and come home 9 hours later to a yummy dish! Serve with crusty bread or Jamaican sweet bread for extra authenticity.
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.
Hearty, spicy comfort food. This Jamaican-inspired dish goes great with rice, plantain or potatoes. Jamaican food is characterised by its use of chillies, thyme and cinnamon. This recipe showcases two of those.
