I'm not sure how authentically Jamaican this jerk recipe is but I do know that it is very tasty. My family loves it. I hope yours will too.
You will need a food processor or blender to make this marinade.
Add all of the ingredients to the processor or blender.
I love my citrus press.
Process well until everything is pureed. It looks kind of like pesto.
I have used chicken breast today but you could use boneless/skinless thighs or even pork tenderloin if you wish.
The flavour of the marinade really penetrates this meat. It goes all the way through.
Barbecue chicken on a medium hot grill for 10-15 minutes until chicken is no longer pink.
Just a delicious marinade. I have used boneless, sinless chicken breasts, but I think that this would also work with chicken thighs and even pork tenderloin.
Watch me make it on You tube.
Cilantro Jerk Marinade
1 cup, packed cilantro
1/2 cup olive oil
4 green onions
6 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoon fresh ginger
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon allspice(in the video I put one tablespoon in. It was a mistake, it should have only been a teaspoon)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
6-10 chicken breasts,thighs, or 4 pork tenderloin
Combine first 11 ingredients in food processor. Process until well blended. Mixture will resemble a thick paste. Combine meat and marinade in a ziplock bag. Place bag into the fridge and let meat marinate for a few hours. Barbeque on a medium hot grill for 10-15 minutes.
