Comments Off on Jerk Lamb Kebabs

I love jerk sauce! It's the perfect blend of spicy, sweet, and savoury flavours. Every time I have it, I'm transported to the Caribbean. I especially love using it as a marinade for chicken or prawn, but today I'm using it with Lamb and boy, are you in for a treat. It's also amazing as a dipping sauce for fried plantains. Overall, jerk sauce is one of my top condiments.
