Jerk chicken is commonly associated with Jamaica, but the spicy grilled dish is found throughout the Caribbean. If you ask my best friend's grandmother, she would say jerk was created by the Taíno people, who inhabited Jamaica prior to European colonization. At the edge of town is the Portland Jerk Centre—an absolute destination spot for anyone keen to learn more about Jamaican food culture. My jerk tofu recipe shares familiar flavors with Jamaican jerk chicken, while cutting out all animal products. Here’s the TL;DR version: When you freeze tofu, the water in it turns into ice and that ice expands, transforming the tofu’s texture.
