Make Your Own Jamaican Jerk Sauce for Chicken or Fish

  Little David's Jerk Sauce Little David owns a jerk pit (Little David's Jerk Centre) in the village of Boston near Port Antonio, Jamaica, where jerk was born. Here's our rendition of his delicious jerk sauce & we think it's a pretty good copy. Below, we'll give you a recipe for baking jerk chicken in the oven. It's not quite the same as the one cooked over the coals and pimento wood, but we think you'll love it anyway. Give it a try! Recipe makes about 1 3/4 cups (enough for 3 to 4 pounds of chicken) 2 c. (about 8) chopped green onions, both white and green parts 2 or 3 hot chiles,...

"Sometimes you just have to get up off of that lounge chair and go explore." Great advice from the Travel Channel's Andrew Zimmern about experiencing wonderful Jamaican food! Some of my favorites are here - like chicken foot soup, curry goat, and tripe & beans. And some great places to try on your travels, like Aunt Merle's at Hellshire Beach for fresh fish, Cherry's One-Stop in Faith Pen, and exotic fruits from the stands in Bog Walk Gorge. Now I am HUNGRY! Enjoy... and go eat some Jamaican food! Yeah man. :yes: Part 1 Jamaican Food on "Bizarre Foods" featured on TRAVEL Part 2 Jamaican...

I am a committed street food gal! My favorite thing each time I arrive in Jamaica is to drive through Yallah's on my way to Portland from Kingston's airport, pull up alongside one of the many jerk pans there on the road, order my quarter pound chicken & festival without stepping out of the car, and then dine while driving. The greatest!! A true Jamaican "drive-thru" experience! :yes: However, you may be headed to Reggae Sumfest or just enjoying a vacation in Montego Bay & want something more than street food, so here are some tips from JamaicaObserver. Scotchies in MoBay is great and...
