Jerk Fish Poutine is a favourite in this house. The jerk marinade elevates this poutine to an entirely different level.
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Caribbean
Serves: 4
  • 2 large white fish fillets or 10 oz (I used Basa)
  • ½ cup Grace jerk marinade
  • 6 medium potatoes, cut into strips for French Fries (not shoestring cut and not wedge cut)
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 cup (or however much you want to use) cheese curds
  • Gravy (homemade or store-bought)
  1. Clean whitefish and put into a large Ziploc bag, along with the Grace jerk marinade.
  2. Seal and let marinate for 2 hrs. Place Basa fillets on a baking sheet.
  3. Toss potatoes/French Fries in oil and place on a baking sheet.
  4. In a 425 degree oven, place baking sheet in oven and cook Basa for 10-12 minutes or until fish is flaky (flakes off with a fork).
  5. Place French Fries in the oven and let bake for 55 to 60 minutes (same temperature as the fish). Halfway through cooking, turn fries over so they cook evenly.
  6. GRAVY - I like to use the drippings from the pan (jerk fish) to a cup of vegetable stock, 3 Tbs flour to thicken. If using store-bought gravy, add drippings so you get that jerk seasoning taste.
  7. When fries and fish are ready, place fries in a serving platter, add cooked Basa on top, add cheese curds, drizzle gravy on top. Serve!
You can use store-bought/ready-made frozen French Fries, but I enjoy cooking my own potatoes.
