Tip of Stefano:

Jamaican cuisine, sweet and spicy. Taste the Caribbean ambience with this delicious brochette.

The Jamaican kitchen is a melting pot of flavors, but absolutely unique in its kind. With many European and African influences, Jamaica has developed its own taste over the years.

A characteristic feature of the Jamaican dishes is the use of Jamaican fruits, such as bananas, avocado, mango and pineapple. Jamaican food is often very spicy, marinades contain many spices, all-in combination with the sweet touch of the fruit or sugar which are used to create some unique combinations.

Allspice has always been a key player in the Jamaican kitchen. It is also called Jamaican pepper. It smells a bit like a mix of nutmeg, clove and cinnamon, but it is quite peppery and has a sharp taste. Jamaican food wouldn’t be Jamaican food without allspice.

In this recipe for Jamaican brochette with seitan, you will experience the Jamaican taste. There’s the allspice of course, but the rum and lime juice will also tune you in the Jamaican ambience. The sweetness of the coconut blossom sugar gives it a unique taste. A treat for warm summer evenings!
