I was inspired by a delicious Jerk turkey recipe by MizPepperpot (which I will make another day when I have the ingredients). Being pushed for time, I used what I had in the fridge (Clara's Jerk Seasoning) and pork. The meal was ready in under an hour and economical too.
The JERK PORK skewers were refreshingly spicy. They can be cooked on the barbecue or grilled and will be ready in no time.
We served ours with a salad, this pineapple salsa we made the other day and these delicious sweet potato wedges.
The SWEET POTATO WEDGES were very easy - just coat in a small amount of oil and sprinkle with cajun seasoning. Cook in a hot oven until soft - about 40 minutes. They cook very well on the barbecue too. They disappeared very quickly...
Marinate (cubed) pork tenderloin fillet in a ready made Jerk paste for at least 20 minutes. Thread onto skewers with fresh pineapple. Brush with oil and cook on the grill or barbecue. Make sure they are cooked all the way through - depending on the size of the meat cubes depends on cooking time. Rest the skewers before serving.
