Jerk seasoning was introduced to my palate about 15 years ago. My favorite jerk flavored dishes are salmon and goat. I still cook my goat in the ground, but I have added jerk flavor season which has taken the dish to the moon and back in the flavor atmosphere.
Jerk is a traditional way of BBQ in Jamaica. I use Walkerswood traditional Jamaican Jerk Seasoning. This seasoning is hot, spicy and will give shoe leather a very GOOOOOD taste. In addition to grilled vegetables, I frequently add pineapple, green and black large seedless grapes cut in half, mango, lime, and papaya.
3 pounds skinless salmon fillets, 1 tablespoon jerk seasoning, 1 ½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle both sides of the fish with olive oil, rub jerk seasoning on both sides of fish. Put the salmon pieces in a shallow glass pan. Cover with foil and refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours to allow the seasonings to marinade. Remove from refrigerator allow fish to reach room temperature bake at 350 degrees until fish flakes easily with a fork. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Dinner is on the table y’all come on let’s eat!
