Jamaican Jerk Sauce

Jamaican Jerk Sauce

After MANY, MANYYYY requests for our Jerk Sauce recipe, we've decided to share it with you so you can make it at home when we don't have it on our current menu.

Zesty, tangy, spiced, and slightly sweet - this is the PERFECT Jerk Sauce (we might be a little biased, but our reviews don't lie).

"Extra jerk sauce please- it is incredible!!"
"That jerk sauce is amazing"
"Please bring back the jerk tofu, the dressing was delicious"
"Yumm!! One of my favs so far!" 

    We use this dressing for one of our customer favourites; our Jerk Tofu Bowl. But you could use it on literally anything. It would be great as a marinade for grilled eggplant, chickpeas, tofu, veggie skewers, roasted sweet potato, or drizzled over salads, beans and rice, on roasted cauliflower... Honestly, the options for this Jerk Sauce recipe are endless!


  • 2 tbsp jerk spice¬†blend (we love the one from A Spice Affair!)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp lime juice¬†
  • 1/2 bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup cilantro¬†
  • 1/4 cup red onion - roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger¬†
  • 1 tbsp fresh garlic¬†
  • 1 tsp salt¬†
  • 1/4 cup olive oil¬†
  • Method

    Step 1:

    Add all the ingredients except the oil to a blender. Blend for approximately 30 seconds until the ingredients form a paste.

    Step 2:

    While still blending, slowly stream in the oil and blend for an additional 30 seconds until the sauce it smooth and glossy.

    Step 3:

    Use immediately. Store the leftovers in a sanitised airtight container in your fridge.


    Recipe Notes:

    If storing in the fridge, we recommend taking it out about 10-15 minutes before serving to bring it up to room temperature.

    Use this as a marinade for things like tofu, chickpeas, veggies, or a sauce over bowls & salads.
