A few months ago, I went with my family to the beautiful island of Jamaica. We visited all the beautiful waterfalls, and even swam with the stingrays in Stingray City! After some major convincing from our tour guide, I even held a stingray (and it bit me, I might add, but still… a once in a lifetime opportunity to be bitten by a stingray I suppose, lol).
I think it is a rule in my family that while on any trip, you just have to try to eat like the locals! So while in Jamaica, my dad had some amazing jerk chicken… the island specialty. You may think, well how do I know it was amazing? Well, of course I didn’t try the chicken, but the veggies that were smothered in their classic Jamaican jerk marinade were absolutely mouth-watering delicious.
Sitting at the pool the other day my mind drifted back to the islands, so I decided to recreate the island “Jamaican Jerk Chicken” specialty (with a veggie girl twist, of course). Hope you enjoy :)
