Jerk Seasoning

Salmon Rasta Pasta

  • 2 cups Pasta Penne or a similar size shape
  • 3 tablespoons Jerk spice seasoning
  • 3 fillets Salmon deboned
  • 2 tablespoons Oil
  • ½ cup Onion chopped or ½ medium size
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 1 Green pepper stalk removed and sliced
  • 1 Red pepper stalk removed and sliced
  • 1 Yellow pepper stalk removed and sliced
  • ½ cup Coconut milk
  • Salt to taste


  • Prepare the jerk seasoning by mixing all the spices in a bowl.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of the spice mix to the salmon in medium size bowl. Add a pinch of salt and toss. Make sure the salmon gets good coverage of the seasoning, then keep to one side.
  • Cook pasta with some salt, following pack instructions. Rinse with cold water to prevent sticking. Keep to one side.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a saucepan under medium heat.
  • Add the salmon to the pan and cook on each side for about 3 mins to seal the spices in. The salmon will be partly cooked. Remove from the pan and keep aside.
  • Add the onion, garlic, and peppers into the pan. Add 1 tablespoon of jerk seasoning and stir for about a minute.
  • Pour in the coconut milk and the salmon. Cover the pan allow simmer for around 10 mins.
  • Add the cooked pasta and stir thoroughly. The salmon will break into smaller pieces, but that is alright.
  • Remove from heat and serve.
