Best Jamaican Jerk dry rub I've used. Beats store bought rubs and sauces hands-down. I used it as a dry rub on Chilean Sea Bass, and the results were nothing short of incredible.
For the Sea Bass, I reduced the salt content - it seemed to high for seafood. However, the recommended amount of salt works fine for meats.
This dry rub also makes a delicious addition to standard BBQ sauces.
This was way too hot for me and I love spicy food. Next time, I will cut the cayenne in half.
Converted down to 25 servings for a smaller amount. Roasted a chicken with it and everyone loved this rub. My MIL asked for recipe, and gave her some of what was left over, and we are both look'n forward to get'n our rub on! Thanks for the post!
The aroma of this was wonderful, both when I mixed it and then when I grilled the meat. I scaled it way back for just a single use, but will make more and store it in a jar to keep on hand. I had some boneless pork in the freezer, so made the dry rub into a paste using canola oil and let the pork thaw and marinate overnight in the refrigerator. The meat was flavorful and tender.
We scaled back the recipe the first time because it was sooo much. It came out absolutely awesome. We had a group of friends over and make dinner with this and they went nutty. So now we have made the full version and use it on everything. Grilled Tilapia, Jerk Chicken...even Jamaican Fried Jerk Chicken...so good. Thanks alot for this one!
I used this seasoning mix on boneless, skinless chicken breasts that I sauteed in a mix of olive oil and butter, about 4 minutes on each side. I then served it with a mango salsa. The spice had just enough kick in it to make one say "hmm, what's in this?" It was a big hit!
This rub has decent flavor but it is not Jamaican Jerk. I've worked alongside a true Jamaican who would cook for us all the time and this rub does not taste like Jerk anything.
Wow, this is awesome stuff. Used it to make a barbecue pork in a crock pot, it was so delicious.
