    I've used a very similar jerk recipe with chicken, pork, tuna and goose breasts. It's very good. I throw all the ingredients into a food processor and blend them well. It saves a lot of time. Also, i don't remove the paste from the meat, it leaves beautiful score marks and I love that smokey flavor it adds when grilled. Just my 2 cents.
