Test Kitchen tip

Jerk is both the name of the Jamaican dry or wet spice rub used to season fish and chicken, as well as the name of the cooking method. Chilli and allspice are the two defining spices in the rub.

You can substitute ground allspice with combined ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon ground clove and ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg.

Waste not tip

Finely grate rind of lime and add to yoghurt for extra citrusy flavour.
