This surf and turf combination pairs boneless pork chops and shrimp. The chops are soaked in a spicy homemade jerk marinade, which keeps the grilled meat moist and juicy while providing a hefty dose of Jamaican flavor.
1. Place onion, oil, lime juice, garlic, scallion, salt, allspice, thyme, nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper and hot sauce in a blender. Whirl until smooth.
2. Place pork chops in a large resealable plastic bag; add marinade. Seal and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Turn occasionally to be sure all meat is coated with the marinade. Add shrimp during the last half hour; seal and turn to coat thoroughly.
3. Heat a gas grill to medium-high or prepare a charcoal grill with medium-hot coals. Lightly coat grill rack with oil or nonstick cooking spray.
4. Remove pork chops and shrimp from plastic bag and shake off excess marinade; discard marinade. Tie each chop with cooking twine so it maintains a round shape to cook evenly. Grill for 5 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Grill shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes per side until cooked through.
