Jamaican Jerk Curry

jamaican_curry

There are few things as challenging as a food blogger as having to cook a cuisine for a challenge that you have no familiarity with.  While I’m familiar with Jamaica, the bits I know are from books and movies – which is something I need to correct.  In looking for recipes I noted a fondness for peanuts and pork, two things that aren’t exactly welcome in my house.  However I kept looking and googling for common ingredients, and with that decided to take the base of a few Jerk Curry recipes I found and make them vegetarian friendly.  I also decided to make my own jerk seasoning, using this recipe I found on AllRecipes.com, which was easy to make and mostly required standard pantry spices.

This dish was a HUGE hit – can’t begin to explain how much my husband enjoyed it!  The combination of sweet and spicy was perfection, and the rice gave just the right amount of texture to the dish.  It might have a rather long ingredient list but it was totally worth it, another great find thanks to /52weeksofcooking.
