By Donal Skehan

The wonderful things about marinating meat is that you can prepare them so far in adavance. Pop the meat in the marinate in a resealable bag in the fridge overnight and the flavours will intensify. Marinated meat can also be frozen. This jerk chicken marinade is quite quirky and has lots of interesting flavours like lime juice, cinnamon, honey and ginger. It sounds like an odd combination but makes for many layers of flavours and served straight from the BBQ with this mango salsa, it’s total sunshine food.
