My fiance and I had a trip booked and paid for a little while ago but sadly we had to postpone, please do the sigh with me....it still hurts to talk about it.
That does not deter me from talking about how much I enjoy spicy foods though.
I can recall many moons ago meeting up with a group of friends every Tuesday night for wings. We'd go to this little pub around the corner (which is another sad story - it's no longer there) grab a table for 10 and begin our ordering.
Mild for that guy, honey garlic for the weak sauce, over there's gonna have hot...but SUICIDE for me!
Now way back when they didn't post the scoville units on menus but I am going to say that these wings were WAY up there.
I mean your eyes would start watering even before they hit the table sort of hot. I would eat them, sweat pouring down my brow enjoying every morsel. Maybe that's why I had so much heartburn while I was pregnant? Huh...
Now this recipe isn't quite THAT hot, I have 2 "lameos" in the house so I have to make things less fiery, but I would certainly recommend adding a scotch bonnet or two (HA) to really really make this jerk rub pop!
Mild Jerk Wet Rub
2-3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
2 dried red chilies broken for the seeds (or pepper flakes as some would have it)
4 green onions - bulbs and all
2 tsp. fresh chopped ginger
2 cloves garlic chopped
2 tsp. fresh thyme
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. allspice
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt and pepper
2 tbsp. oil (I used veg)
In a blender (or food processor if you're lucky enough to have one) place all of the ingredients in except the oil. Blend to make a puree. Slowly drizzle in the oil as you continue to blend.
