One of our favorite things to eat on Game Day is WINGS! Usually Buffalo Wild Wings is our favorite, but, we thought we’d try something new this time. We found several recipes for Caribbean Jerk Rub and this is the one we made! This is intended to be pretty spicy, so, if you don’t do spicy this probably isn’t for you 😉
1/2 Cup ground Allspice
1/2 Cup brown sugar
6-8 garlic cloves
4-6 habaneros*, seeded and cored (be sure to wear gloves when doing this!)
1 Tablespoon ground thyme
2 bunches green onions
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons soy sauce to moisten
Put all ingredients in your blender. Blend until smooth. (This will be pretty thick.) (Keep refrigerated if you’re not going to use right away.)
(This makes about 1 cup. We made about 30 wings and still had some leftover.)
Rub the wings well with the seasoning. It’s best to marinate over night, but, we didn’t want to wait so they just marinated for a few hours.
Grill on low heat (we used our grill tray) until wings are cooked through.
Now it’s time to eat! Enjoy with some ranch and celery (especially if you want to tone down the heat a little!)
The rub will stay good in your fridge for a long time! You can also enjoy this on chicken breast, pork, fish or vegetables. We are actually going to make this again tonight and try it on chicken breast! I’m sure we will love it just as much. I’ll let you know how yummy it turns out!
*Most recipes actually call for scotch bonnet peppers, but, we couldn’t find them at our grocery store and some of the other caribbean jerk recipe’s we found used habaneros.
