There is nothing like the smell of alley way barbeques in the streets of Jamaica. My daughter gave us the most blessed experience of witnessing her wedding on a beautiful beach in Montego Bay. In this experience was a tour to the market place where local artists sell their arts and crafts and if you take a beautiful breath in there is this fragrance of cinnamon, paprika, lime, onions and various other spices such as nutmeg and cayenne lingering over the smell of wood burning and at a glance succulent pieces of chicken roasting on a hot wood fire and locals chatting up a storm, as your mouth waters to taste that raw form of cuisine I call culinary ghetto.
This recipe I am sharing with you today was inspired by this experience and also by some friends who are from Jamaica whom I shared dinner with several times. I present to you Jerk Lamb with a side of Caribbean rice and baby broccoli. I did not make it suicide hot but it does have a nice kick to it.
Be creative in your presentation: remember what looks good usually tastes good.
