Jerk Shrimp With Pineapple Rice

Jerk + pineapple = HELLLLL YEAHHHH! Its a combination of sweet and savory that you can’t resist….well at least I can’t. I grew up on jerk chicken, so my love for jerk flavored anything is endless. Growing up in my house we had jerk chicken for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter dinner. My dad would ask us what we want for dinner, and before we could respond he would say “jerk chicken??”. I don’t remember us ever saying no to that! lol!

Not only is this dish delicious, but its as easy as snapping your fingers. This takes exactly 30 minutes to make, and taste just like you are eating at a Caribbean restaurant. ← My moms exact words. Anyone and their grandma can make this, so don’t fret if your an amateur in the kitchen.
