Get a taste of the Caribbean with this authentic Jamaican Jerk Seasoning blend! Use it as a dry rub on chicken wings or steak. Or use it to make a marinade for chicken breasts, chicken thighs or shrimp!
Combine all of the spices in a small bowl or mason jar.
Keep stored in an airtight container in the pantry for up to 6 months.
To create a marinade with the jerk seasoning, combine 4 tablespoons jerk seasoning with 2 tablespoons lime juice, 2 tablespoons olive oil and 2 tablespoons soy sauce. Toss 2 pounds of chicken (or the protein of your choice) in the marinade. Marinate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 8 hours.
To alter the spice level of the seasoning mix, either add more or less scotch bonnet pepper powder or cayenne pepper. If you're sensitive to spice, I'd recommend starting off with only ½ tablespoon of the pepper powder.
