Jerk Salmon

Jerk Salmon

Salmon is such a versatile fish; you can prepare it a number of ways and it will absorb the flavors quite well. Lately, I have grown tired of chicken, but still often crave a protein with a jerk seasoning.  I decided to try my hand at jerk salmon and was so pleased with the results that next time, I will throw in on top of a big salad. When summer arrives and fruit is at its height of freshness, a mango salsa to serve with this recipe is going to be downright divine. But until then, this will have to do. Enjoy.
