Special equipment: 2 dozen (10-inch) wooden skewers soaked in water for 20 minutes, then drained well.

Dora’s Jerk Seasoning:
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried, crushed Scotch bonnet pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika

1 tablespoon butter
1/2 to 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 (18-ounce) jar orange marmalade
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt





Cut tenderloin in half crosswise. Cut each half lengthwise into 4-inch thin strips. Place pork in a heavy duty re-sealable plastic bag.

In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, olive oil, garlic, and jerk seasoning. Pour over pork. Seal bag, and marinate pork in refrigerator, 1 hour.

Turn on broiler.

When ready to cook the pork, line a broiler pan with aluminum foil. Lightly grease rack and place on pan. Remove pork from bag; discard marinade.

Thread pork onto skewers in an “s” shape. Place skewers in a single layer on a prepared pan. Broil 5 inches from heat for 8 minutes, turning once. Serve warm with Caribbean Dipping Sauce.

Dora’s Jerk Seasoning:
Combine all ingredients in a bowl until well mixed. Store in an airtight container.

Caribbean Dipping Sauce:
In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add pepper and ginger, and cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium-low, and stir in marmalade, lime juice, and salt. Simmer 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

*Cook’s Note: Jalapeno peppers are extremely hot. We recommend wearing disposable gloves when handling them.

I have made this many times and this is a nice change from burgers and pork chops. I have made them for superbowl party's and a couple of bbq parties and they are always the focus. This will always be in my top 10 go to reccipes.
