Spicy Jerk Fried Rice

This simple Spicy Jerk Fried Rice is a delicious fusion of Caribbean and Asian flavors. I used day-old rice and peas from the my favorite Jamaican carry-out, but you can also make fresh rice and peas at home. I used jerk seasoning from my favorite brand, but Jamaican curry powder would also add amazing flavors to this fried rice recipe.


  • 1 1/2 cups day old Jamaican rice and peas

  • 1/2 cup shredded cabbage

  • 1 cup mixed vegetables of choice (if frozen, rinse to thaw before cooking)

  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms

  • 2-3 scallions thinly sliced

  • 1/2 tsp Chinese 5 spice or ground allspice

  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger1 tsp garlic powder

  • 4 tsp Tamari sauce, soy sauce, or coconut aminos

  • 1 generous tsp mild jerk seasoning

  • 1-2 Tbsp grapeseed oil


  1. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat.

  2. Add grapeseed oil and use a spatula to spread across the surface of the pan until evenly coated.

  3. Add mushrooms, garlic powder and jerk seasoning and saute for about 5-7 minutes until the mushrooms have released most of their moisture.

  4. Add all remaining ingredients and stir fry for another 5-7 minutes until evenly heated through and fragrant. Serve with a big green salad and enjoy!
