Toronto Has Become The Jerk Chicken Epicenter Of North America
Jerk Chicken by SunRise Caribbean Restaurant is one of Toronto's best kept secret.
Traditionally, jerk seasoning was applied to pork and chicken; however, modern recipes also apply jerk spice mixes to fish, shrimp, shellfish, beef, sausage, lamb, and tofu.
With its principal ingredients being allspice (called "pimento" in Jamaica), Scotch bonnet peppers (among the hottest peppers on the Scoville scale), cloves, cinnamon, scallions, nutmeg, thyme, garlic, and salt, jerk season livens up a dish. This wonderful seasoning has contributed to the success of SunRise Caribbean Restaurant, now a chain of 11 restaurants.
Jerk cooking and seasoning has followed the Caribbean diaspora all over the world, and forms of jerk can now be found at restaurants almost anywhere a significant population of Caribbeans exist, such as the United Kingdom, Canada, or the United States.
