Jerk Fish on Coconut Rice Topped with Banana and Pineapple Salsa

Jerk Fish on Coconut Rice Topped with Banana and Pineapple Salsa

It has been a while since the last time I did a Jamaican jerk dish and I had been craving one for the last few days. Since I have been trying to keep things on the lighter side I figured that a jerked fish dish would be perfect. I kept things pretty and simple and I went with my favourite homemade jerk marinade recipe which I marinated the fish in for several hours ahead of time. I often like to serve jerk dishes with a fruity salsa and this time I went with a banana and pineapple salsa whose sweetness and juiciness would nicely balance the heat from the spicy jerk marinade. I served the fish over some jasmine rice that I cooked in coconut milk to keep the fruity theme going. Overall this is a really amazing light, quick and tasty dish that certainly satisfied my cravings for a Jamaican jerk dish!

This recipe is a homerun! This jerk recipe is the best I've ever had. And I'm not normally a fan of fruity salsas but the sweet cool flavors of pineapple and banana compliment the spiciness of the jerk perfectly. I used habaneros in the jerk and salsa....superb!

MommyTanya said...

MMMMMM this sounds amazing! Do you use the whole batch of marinade? Does the marinade keep?

Kevin said...

MommyTanya: I used the whole batch of the marinade because I wanted to to bake the fish in it to help keep it nice and moist. You could easily use only half of the batch and save the rest for another dish and it should keep in the fridge for at least a week.
