I'm a huge fan of Jerk Seasoning, however, I often find the ready made seasonings are either too salty, or have very little flavour. So I decided I would make up my own recipe for seasoning, with a little help from my good friend Wilma who happened to prize the recipe from her Uncle in St Kitts!
If you would like to use this seasoning recipe for use on meat, I would suggest you add a few Tablespoons of Orange Juice, to make it a wet rub, and tenderise the meat. But for a dry rub, you can just stick to the ingredients listed below.
Please enjoy!

Ingredients

2 Corn Cobs
1/2 Eggplant
1 Zucchini / Courgette
8 Medium Mushrooms
**** Please note, you can swap the vegetables for anything you like, just be sure to cut them all the same size
2 Tablespoons of Jerk Seasoning
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

The Jerk Seasoning

The ingredients below make around 1/2 Cup.
3 Tbsp sweet paprika
3 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp ground allspice
1 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
3/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (more or less, depending on preferred spice level)
1 Tbsp salt
3/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
2 teaspoons sugar

Instructions

1. Clean the corn, and slice in to 1 inch thick pieces. Wash and prepare the other vegetables and cut to roughly the same thickness.

2. In a bowl, make up the seasoning by simply adding all the ingredients and combining well.

3. Place all the vegetable items in a Zip Bag and add the 2 Tablespoons of Jerk Seasoning along with the Olive Oil. Seal the bag and give it a shake so everything is distributed. Place in the fridge until ready for grilling.

4. Depending on the size of the skewers you have, evenly divide the vegetables between all the skewers and then place on the BBQ, turning until cooked.

NOTES:

  • You can bake this in the oven, at a medium temperature either on the skewers or just spread on a baking tray. It will take around 20 - 25 minutes, until golden.
  • Any leftover Jerk seasoning can be stored in an airtight container for several weeks.
  • The recipe above is enough for about 1/2 Cup of seasoning.
  • You can also use the Jerk Seasoning for marinating chicken or pork. It is delicious!
