Let's Cook!

Step 1

If preparing your own jerk seasoning, blend all the ingredients for the paste in a food processor until smooth.

Step 2

Toss the prawns with the jerk seasoning paste and let marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Step 3

Cook the jasmine rice according to package instructions, using 2 cups of water. Season with salt and fluff with a fork once cooked.

Step 4

Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the marinated prawns and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, until they are pink and slightly charred.

Step 5

Add the pineapple chunks to the skillet in the last few minutes of cooking, just long enough to warm through and pick up some of the spices.

Step 6

Serve the spicy prawns and pineapple over the steamed jasmine rice, garnished with fresh basil leaves.
