Jamaican Jerk Rub
This rub gives chicken, pork, or snapper—or whatever else you’re grilling—a classic Jamaican flavor without any fuss.
2 Tbsp granulated onion
2 Tbsp dried onion flakes (get flakes that aren’t too big)
1 Tbsp 15 mL ground dried thyme
1 Tbsp Johnny’s Jamaica Me Crazy Seasoning
2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp cayenne or chipotle powder for an extra kick!
Double or quadruple this recipe so you have some on hand!
P.S. It’s super easy to make a great jerk marinade simply by whizzing 1/2 cup of this rub in a food processor with a splash of cooking oil, a chopped habañero chile, a chopped onion, and some chopped scallions!
