Jerk Marinade

This is an incredible spicy, citrusy, flavorful marinade for chicken, shrimp or pork. I know it looks like a lot of ingredients but you probably have most of them already.  Get them together and make this.  It's so, so good.  The scotch bonnet pepper is super spicy but tastes great with everything.  Spice up your veggies and roast them with the jerk marinade.
