Jerk Fish

I went through a phase recently of cooking a lot of recipes from the Giraffe cook book and I was intrigued by the recipe for jerk fish with lime and garlic jerk butter, as I've come across jerk chicken before but not jerk fish. I decided to try out the recipe, but I didn't make the butter or the coconut rice that the book suggests serving it with.

To serve one, you need:
1 spring onion
1/4 red pepper, chopped
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp fresh thyme
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
1/2 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tbsp malt vinegar

Chop the spring onion and pepper and combine in a bowl

Add the herbs and spices and season

Finally add the brown sugar and vinegar and mix well

Take a piece of white fish - I used monkfish

Marinade the fish in the sauce for an hour

You can grill, oven cook or fry the fish, whatever you prefer

I served it with some new potatoes and vegetables -it was a nice zesty change, and would also go well with rice.
