Shrimp and corn is already an iconic combination—especially in the summer months—but it’s even better once you add a hefty sprinkle of Jerk seasoning. It’s nice and spicy, complete with allspice, cinnamon, oregano, and more, plus a little brown sugar for a balance of sweetness. Grill it all up for a quick dinner that’ll transport you to a beachside BBQ.
