Jerked Grouper

I found where to post recipes on the forum, and will post the recipe for Jerked Grouper that chef Eric Weber gave me.[p]However, on reflecting on the ingredients, I think that Eric did not proportion several ingredients in the rub properly. He indicated "3 bunches" of scallions, and with the rest of the ingredients being in small quantities, I think this should be changed to "3 scallions".
The amount of ginger also may be a bit to much, so I will recommend 1/4 to 1/2 inch of that. And, 2 habenero peppers may be a touch to much heat for some people, so I am going to change that to 1-2 peppers.[p]I posted the recipe exactly as given to me by Eric and hope that no one made the jerk marinade with the large amount of scallions? Three bunches of them seem to me like it would make a greenish paste instead of a marinade once whipped up in a processor.[p]I will be at a Food TV filming here in Tampa later this morning, and Eric Weber is supposed to be there. I will try to clarify the quantities if I can get his attention. Then, I will repost any new changes that will be made.[p]Hope that this is not confusing to anyone. I do not want to submit the recipe until I have a chance to go over it again with Eric. I apologize for not catching what may be disproportional amounts of items in the recipe beforehand. He is used to cooking for big groups of people in his restaurant, and may have had trouble transposing the recipe for a smaller group?[p] [p]

    Bobby Que, I made a half-recipe of the jerk sauce. I used four scallions up to the point where the tops split off (about half white, half green). I would certainly like to know how much of the entire scallion to use. As for the ginger, I used about half what the full recipe called for and I did not think it was excessive. However, since ginger is a root, an inch can vary quite a lot in quantity. But the jerk sauce sure was good no matter how much I messed it up.

    char buddy ,[p]I just returned from the Food TV expo at the Tampa convention Center. They taped several upcoming shows, like "Live TV" and such. Also, had booths with noted area restaurants serving nice tidbits, and several national booth serving wine and beer. I was a guest of Chef Jimmy Gherardi, a noted chef in the cincinnati area. He goes
    around the country for Cisco Products.[p]I found Chef Eric Weber, and he assures me that even though the 3 bunches of scallions and 1/2 inch of ginger may seem to be a bit much, his experimentation with jerk sauce shows this to work- so I will post his recipe unchanged in the Seafood section. [p]Enjoy.

    Wise One,[p]You must have felt like I did when perusing the recipe. It sounded like a lot of scallions. I talked to Chef Eric today. Eric said to go for 3 bunches of scallions and 1/2 inch of ginger in his recipe. I will post this in the Seafood section of submitted recipes.[p]Thanks[p]

    Wise One,[p]Use the white parts and a little of the green. Once again, Eric uses 3 bunches of scallions in the recipe I have placed in the Seafood section of submitted recipes.[p]
