Spicy Rum Marinate for Chicken or Salmon

29 Aug

My husband requested chicken with Caribbean seasoning. Our son and his wife brought back some great Caribbean rum for us from St Lucia. I mixed up some Caribbean seasonings and mixed it with rum and lime juice. We both loved the seasoning. I marinated the chicken in the mix for 2 hrs. The salmon was marinated 20 minutes. I did not want to marinate fish for too long, because the lime juice would actually “cook” it. I baked everything, but would love my for my son in-law to grill it for us one day. He can do some wonders with his Big Green Egg.


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 fluid ounces rum
  •  1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground clove
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • chicken breast

Mix all of the ingredients together. Pour into a zip log bag with the chicken or salmon. Marinate chicken 2-3 hrs, salmon for 20-30 minutes. Bake chicken in 35o degree oven for 40 minutes, salmon for 20 minutes.
