Description - A small size breadfruit, firm, green turning to brown around 1kg weight.

I cleaned the breadfruit well to remove any dirt and latex. Peeled with a sharp knife, cut into quarters, removed the central core from each piece then sliced into thin pieces approximately 1cm thick.


I soaked the breadfruit slices in salt water for 1 hour then drained and dried off lightly on kitchen towel.


Fried in hot coconut oil for 3 or 4 minutes either side until golden brown and soft, then covered in cajun seasoning. Enough for 3 servings.


Delicious!


I used top quality sea salt flakes from Dorset Sea Salt Co, hand harvested from Chesil Beach

https://www.dorsetseasalt.co.uk/ 

and organic coconut oil from Vita Coco

in the fridge for 4 days before cooking.
