Jamaican Jerk Seasoning Blend

I like to change things up and no better way than with spices.  This seasoning blend uses everyday spices to kick up chicken, potatoes or fish to the next level.  Jamaican Jerk is very popular in the Caribbean because of its earthy notes and spiciness.  Mix this up and add some kick to your next chicken dinner!

Jamaican Jerk Seasoning Blend


1 tablespoon garlic powder

2 to 3 teaspoons cayenne pepper (to taste)

2 teaspoons onion powder

1 teaspoon thyme leaves

1 teaspoon ground thyme

2 teaspoons dried parsley

2 teaspoons sugar

2 teaspoons salt (I use Kosher)

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon ground allspice

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Combine all ingredients into an airtight container.  Sprinkle generously over chicken, pork, fish or potatoes.

Will last up to 3 months.
