Jerk steak & shrimp over tropical pilaf rice


I cooked my rice in coconut water and added grilled pineapples, a little sazon and some black pepper. I added fresh parsley.

Jerk sauce:

1 yellow onion, chopped

6 stalks green onions, chopped

3/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup white vinegar

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded, deveined and halved (or scotch bonnet pepper if you can find)

1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves


In a food processor add the green onions, onion, jalapeno, soy sauce, vinegar, vegetable oil, brown sugar, thyme, kosher salt, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice and puree until smooth.

Cut steak into bite sized pieces and cooked about minute each side, and added sauce in a let it coat the steak, removed from heat.

Cooked shrimp on each side about 2 minutes and added sauce to shrimp and let it get a little char and shrimp made a “c” shape.

I sautéed onions and bell peppers too.
