O.T. Caribbean spicy paste/rub recipe

Post by chef97 »

I have been experimenting with this recipe for awhile now and this sweet & spicy paste/rub goes great with chicken, pork and seafood.... I hope you guys try it and let me know what you think....

2 to 4 habanero chiles
6 scallions or green onions green and whites finely chopped
1/4 cup all spice
2 tablespoons fresh thyme chopped
2 tablespoons black pepper
4 teaspoons kosher or coarse salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tablespoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 cup fresh minced garlic
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup olive oil



I place all ingredients in my food processer but you can just use a cutting board and knife and chop all vegtables and herbs by hand and then add wet ingredients and mix well... Also, you can vary the amount of chiles to adjust spiciness and recipe is good for at least 5lbs of meat...

Coat either chicken, pork chops/ribs or seafood and marinate for at least two hours before grilling, broiling or baking your meat.... For chicken and pork cook meat until the juices run clear....

And as always happy grilling!

Yes, (spice combo is jerk style) only I've put my own little twist on the recipe... I'm going to use this recipe on chicken that I'm going to cook on the grill later on this evening.... The high sugar content could burn meat if too much heat/flame if baking go 325 degrees F.....

You can sub fresh jalapeno chiles or serano chiles for the the habanero chiles too Astor.... You're right about the meat caramelizing too bro! Sweet and spicy is the flavor profile I was looking for... 8)

Nice, you going to use your electric rotisserie attachment for your grill again Astor? Also, are you going to cook pork loin or chicken?


Thanks!

Sunday is the BIG grocery day so i'll see what they have for nice cuts of meat... might be pork or chicken, mylene always prefers chicken... if its a whole chicken (they had a good price of 10$ for 2) then ill definately use the rotating rotisserie

if not it might be skinless chicken breast or something

Btw chef, i know its not too cold where you live, but for winter if you get your herbs or plants inside your house (if they have been outside all summer), do you have a good trick for a liquid solution to kill any kind of small bug that could have establish on the plant...

i heard dish washing soap diluted in water, spray and repeat 3 days later??? im searching for all suggestions

Actually that soap doesn't work because the bugs come back... I have used those fogeer bomb things you have to set it off then leave your house for several hours but it's the most effective because the bugs won't come back... I like your whole chicken idea but it will work just fine with boneless/skinless too.... We are receiving some excellent pork from Canada it's our new contract spec item with Sodexo and the quality of this pork from Canada is awesome very lean and flavorful....

I have some terrific vegetarian recipes on my hard drive at work I'll put some on a thumb drive and bring home to post here... Is Mylene a vegan or does she eat cheese/dairy/seafood? My 13 year old daughter has been a vegetarian for about 6 mos now but she does eat some seafood and dairy so it's easier for me to cook for her because of variety....

yeah the pork is reknown quality here, they still try to sell us the usa pork though, bigger and cheaper, but its just not the same texture and taste

there is the charlevoix pork too, reknown around the world, fed with salt water herbs near the st-laurent, gives it a taste that is again sought around the world

I have only read about this product in my monthly Chef magazine.... I thought it was only available in France though..... Really expensive too but suppose to be worth every penny.... You're also right abouth the higher quality "texture and taste" of the Canadian pork we get here now.... The company I work for is French owned "Sodexo" we are like the New York Yankees of food services and operate on every continent.....

i had high expectation and it was even better than expected lol

just really good chef, yes the color might be doubtfull (its black because of the sugar of the meat and the rub) but i twice coated it and it was incredibly great, still inserted some garlic pieces in the meat, and coated it before cooking and 30 minutes before the end too... was incredibly great, nice taste, balance between sugar, salt, fire... and the "nutmeg/cinnamon/all spice/clove like" all have that same taste where the taste bud at the back and side are called in full force. it remindede me of the lays BBQ chip taste with a few twists... lol

the meat pie with clove here is a classic at cristmass holidays, so the all spice(clove like) taste is something known here, but the way it was belnded with other interesting taste made it a pleasure for my mouth.

this would be spectacular on a whole chiken

mylene ate it with a mexican type rice (spicy tomatoe rizzzoto with beef,corn and red beans) and a spring mix type of salad with red balsamic dressing (tomatoe and green chive with the mix) and red wine
