Jamaican Jerk Marinade Recipe

Jamaican Jerk Marinade Notes

This is a slightly tweaked version of The Spice House's traditional jerk marinade recipe, submitted by long-time crew member Jennifer "JR" Statz. Mix this up the night before your barbeque party, and you'll be ready to go straight to the grill.

Serves / Yields

4-5 appetizer servings

Preparation Instructions

Wash and cut the chicken wings. Cut each wing at the joints, throw away the wing tips, and you'll get two finger-lickin' pieces per wing.

Mix the marinade ingredients together, pour over the wings, and refrigerate overnight (at least 4-6 hours, and up to 2 days). Zip lock bags make great disposable marinating containers. Throw the left-over marinade away. Grill as desired.

Helpful Hints

This marinade works for other cuts of chicken--any poultry really. It's also great for fish, but you don't need a long marination time.
