The most famous dish in all of Jamaica is something called Jamaican Jerk Chicken. Being that the A.W.E.D. Caribbean Event , started by DK of Chef In You, is a vegetarian event, it would not be prudent to make Jerk Chicken as an entry. So I thought why not take the Jerk seasoning blend used on the chicken and apply it to veggies! I had some zucchini in my refrigerator and thought I would give it a try. Here is what I did...
1 T. dried minced onions (or onion powder)
1 t. dried thyme
1 t. ground allspice
1 t. ground pepper
1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1/2 t. cayenne pepper (or more if you like it spicy!)
1 t. salt
Jamaican Jerk Zucchini
2 zucchini, sliced round and halved
1 medium onion, sliced
2 T. Jerk Seasoning
salt & pepper to taste
1 T. extra virgin olive oil
Heat oil in pan. Add onions and zucchini and saute for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add Jerk Seasoning and continue to saute until zucchini is tender.
