Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon Caribbean jerk seasoning
  • 1 lb. fresh or frozen turkey tenderloins, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 small firm bananas, diagonally sliced

    GRILL DIRECTIONS: Heat grill. Rub jerk seasoning onto both sides of turkey tenderloins.
  • 2
    When ready to grill, place turkey on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals; cover grill. Cook 10 to 15 minutes or until turkey is fork tender and juices run clear, turning once.

    Meanwhile, in medium skillet over medium-low heat, combine brown sugar, lime juice and water; mix well. Add bananas; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until bananas are warm.
  • 4
    To serve, cut turkey into slices. Serve bananas with turkey.

  • Red chiles, thyme and allspice give Caribbean jerk seasoning its sweet and spicy flavor. Look for the mixture, also called Jamaican jerk seasoning, in the spice section of the supermarket.
  • Try using 1 plantain in place of the bananas. A large firm variety of banana often called the cooking banana, plantains have a mild, less-sweet banana flavor that is a good match for hot and spicy foods. Cook the plantain 1 to 3 minutes longer than stated cooking times, or until tender.
  • Complete the meal with cooked white rice sprinkled with diced bell pepper.
