For the jerk marinade
4 tsp all-purpose seasoning
2 tsp ground ginger
90ml cider vinegar
1 Scotch Bonnet, with seeds, very ﬁnely chopped
2 tsp ﬁnely grated nutmeg
2 tbsp olive oil
16 chicken wings
lime wedges, to serve
Mix together all the marinade ingredients in a shallow dish and add the chicken wings, turning them to coat really well. Cover and marinate in the fridge, ideally overnight, or for at least 1–2 hours.
Barbecue the chicken wings for about 10 minutes or so, turning them over when they’re patched with brown. Serve with cooling lime wedges.
Hot and fruity Caribbean coleslaw
A million miles away from those heavy creamy coleslaws, this is one to wake up your taste buds. It’s fruity, hot and even healthy. I could eat this just on its own, it’s so delicious. And it’s a wonderful contrast to all that hot barbecued meat. Make a big bowlful!
