Grilled Rum Jerk Style Chicken or Pork Recipe and Island Cruise



Another great grilling marinade and delicious sauce. Get the most use out of your summer grilling with the best flavors! One of the many delicious island foods we had on our recent Eastern Carribean Cruise in the Virgin Islands last week. August 12th we set sail on our seven day anniversary cruise. As soon as we got home I had to make this grilled delight myself! Yah mon! It's a favorite food served on most  beach day excursions. The smell alone made your mouth water.

Our 12th Anniversary.

2 pounds of shrimp, boneless chicken or pork tenderloin cut into cubes
2 cans of drained pineapple
1 bottle jerk sauce
Italian seasoning
1 cup white Rum
4 garlic cloves
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup water


Boil 1 cup water, 3 tablespoons each salt and brown sugar, 2 teaspoons  Italian seasoning and 4 garlic cloves. Add 1 cup rum, then cool. Add cubed chicken, shrimp or pork tenderloin and marinate. Skewer with pineapple. Grill, basting with bottled jerk sauce. Cook 10 to 15 minutes on each side until cooked. Serve with a salad and steamed white rice.
Hope you all enjoy the photo's. The cruise was wonderful. We just love how relaxing it is. Something to try at least once.
This is our 10th cruise now. With God's blessing, hopefully won't be the last..
