A taste of the Caribbean.
Chef Chris Schlesinger gives his take on the tropical favorite, Jamaican Jerk Rub. Jerk is a traditional flavor combination that is used for marinating and barbecuing meats and fish. The unique combination of aromatics, spice, heat, and sweetness can be deliciously addicting.
This extremely spicy recipe uses Scotch Bonnet peppers, but you could easily tame it down using some less spicy peppers to taste.
