A note about serious food allergies

A famous entertainer of children once said “if you love it so much, why don't you marry it?” We would marry this jerk sauce, but it's illegal in all 50 states. We'll settle for bathing meatballs in its splendor, coating them with smoky goodness. The bright salad on the side, with oranges and red bell peppers, provides a nice sweet crunch that melds perfectly. The secret word to this dish is: delicious.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into 2" long strips.

    Cook the Meatballs

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add meatballs to hot pan and stir occasionally until meatballs are browned and reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 8-10 minutes. Add jerk sauce, 1 Tbsp. water, and white portions of green onions and stir until warmed through, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner. While meatballs cook, make salad.
