Recipe #5: Jerk Salmon

11 Feb

This recipe shouldn’t really count.  It isn’t out of the book, but it is as Jamaican as they come because of the jerk!! Looove Jerk, and you can jerk anything. I used the simple jerk paste out of the jar. This is my favorite, but there are many others.

All you need,

  •  jerk paste
  • salmon
  • salt
  • pepper

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Later, I promise to conjure up my own jerk paste.

Take your salmon,

Salt and pepper the top of your salmon. Spread the jerk paste over the top.  The amount of paste you spread will tell you how spicy your salmon will be.

I spread it lightly, my dad said I was trying to burn his tongue off this weekend.. lol

Then you can bake the salmon for 15 mins in the oven. The salmon should flake easily with a fork, and since I know whenever someone has told me that I am never sure what it should actually look like… here is what it looks like. 🙂

    I love making Jerk Salmon, trying rubbing fresh garlic on top and inside the salmon. Also drizzle a little honey on top of the salmon before it goes into the oven. Keep blogging this amazing!!!!

      Oohhh! That sounds delicious! Love the idea of honey with jerk seasonings or paste. Cuts the heat just a bit and give a sweet kick!
