    Had a gorgeous tea the other night made by my gorgeous BF!!

    Jerk seasoning (which can be used on meat/ fish) Blitz the following ingredients in a blender - quantities dont really matter

    thyme
    nutmeg
    mixed spice
    fresh chilli
    spring onions
    lime juice

    Coat your King prawns in nearly all of the seasoning and leave to marinade (at least 2 hours works well).

    For the rice:

    Using frylight, fry off sliced onions and peppers until softening, add the rest of your jerk seasoning and some kidney beans.
    (You should/ could add coconut milk at this point at a high syn cost but I added yoghurt instead. Weight watchers do a nice pineapple/ cocunut yoghurt which I may try next time.)

    Stir some cooked rice into the mixture - or you can just serve the plain rice seperately if you prefer.

    Grill/ griddle your prawns (works best on skewers) and serve on top of the rice.

    Done!

    That sounds lovely. Being married to a Jamaican I am always looking for new recipies that will inspire. Love the idea of using yoghurt too. Will give it a go.
