MOMMA CHERRI'S CAJUN JERK SEASONING

Ingredients

1 bunch of fresh spring onions
1 bunch of fresh flat leaf parsley
a few sprigs of fresh corriander
1 red or yellow scotch bonnet chilli pepper
1 whole lime,
½ lemon
pinch of sea salt and black pepper
teaspoon cajun seasoning and a pinch of mixed spice
2 tablespoons olive oil for blending

Method

Wash thoroughly the parsley, corriander and spring onions.
Discard any brown or rotten bits.
Roughly chop all the vegetables into a bowl.
Peel one lime and cut in half, get rid of seeds.
Place lime and one chilli in with vegetables. Depending on how hot or not, you can discard the seeds from the chill. At this stage add only ½ of the chilli .
Using a hand blender mix all of the above together, at this stage sqeeze the juice of the lemon and add the olive oil slowly so that it all blends together nicely. Add the salt, pepper, cajun seasoning, and mixed spice.
The mixture should be smooth but not pureed . Make sure you taste it. You can add the other half of chilli if you want it hotter.
I tend to place the mixture in the fridge, leaving it to chill. You can use it straight away but the flavours increase the longer it sits.
You are now ready to use it to stuff in your chicken, fish, or use as a spicy seasoning for vegetables and salads.
