Author Notes: A cornerstone of Jamaican cooking, jerk is a play of sweet and smoky, spicy and herbal and can be credited to the Maroons, Africans who were brought to Jamaica and helped fight off British and Spanish dominion over the island. Jerk refers to the way a meat, fish or vegetable is seasoned and cooked- typically with a marinade or paste that includes a heavy dose of allspice, thyme and chili peppers. We've used our Jamaican Jerk Spices to create a marinade for jerk fish to serve as summery, spicy tacos.RawSpiceBar
