Jamaican Jerk Turkey


2 lb (1 kg) Turkey Thighs and/or drumsticks

4 Green Onions, chopped

1 Jalapeno Pepper, seeded and diced

2 cloves Garlic, minced

4 tsp (20 mL) Lime Juice

4 tsp (20 mL) Soy Sauce

2 tsp (10 mL) grated Ginger Root

2 tsp (10 mL) ground Cumin

1 tsp (5 mL) ground Coriander

1 tsp (5 mL) ground Allspice

1 tsp (5 mL) dried Thyme


Except turkey pieces, mix all ingredients together for marinade. Mix turkey pieces with marinade until well-coated. Cover and refrigerate 2 to 8 hours to marinate.

Grill or broil 5” (13 cm) from heat until done (until a digital meat thermometer inserted into the meat, away from bone, registers 165F (74C)). Be careful not to overcook. Serve garnished with tropical fruits as an appetizer or with traditional rice and beans as a main course.
