Lonsdale Quay is also holding its Summer Fest throughout the end of this month and into August. A all-year-round market, it is a charming setting for fresh fruit, homemade goods, and dead fish (as illustrated above by Josh).
Jerk sauce/spices were developed in Jamaica, and were used on chicken and goat (it's branched out enough in our modern times to be used on tofu - jerk tofu! hm!). Some people say that it is the country's most famous export besides Bob Marley. It is certainly the most delicious.
2 to 4 scotch bonnet peppers, sliced (jalapenos can be used in lieu)
1 tbsp. thyme
1 tbsp. ground allspice
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. ginger
1 head garlic, peeled and finely chopped
2 medium onions, finely chopped
1/8 c. brown sugar, packed
2 tbsp. salt
2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 c. olive oil
1/4 c. soy sauce
1 lime, juiced
1 c. orange juice
1 c. white vinegar
3 tbs. rum (optional)
2 lbs.of pork chops
salad stuff (if you like yours on salad)
1. Blend the first 17 ingredients until they are pretty much smooth. Marinade pork in sauce for 24 hours in the fridge, covered.
2. (I had to simmer mine on the stove because I wanted to have as much flavor as possible - I didn't get any time to marinade; but this is the way I would have done it.) If you have a barbecue, great - do it on the barby. If not, and you live in an apartment (like I do), and it would cause your neighbors much consternation if you barbecued in your place, then do it in the stove. Preheat your oven to 375 F.
3. In a small roasting pan, roast the chops until browned on the outside (turning halfway through, about 9 minutes in), yet still have a hint of pink inside - about 18 minutes altogether.
4. While roasting the pork, take the remainder of the marinade left in the bowl and toss it in a saucepan. Put the saucepan on the stove at medium. Let come to a simmer, and let bubble, stirring occasionally, until it reduces to a thickness you like (I personally like mine a little runnier than the normal individual).
5. Pray. Eat. Enjoy while listening to some Bob.
