(For more flavor, toss the shredded jackfruit in the spices, herbs, lime juice and marinate in the fridge for an hour or overnight. then cook with water)
  • Heat 1 tsp oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add shredded jackfruit and all dry spices (or 1.5 tbsp or more premade Jamaican jerk seasoning). Cook for 2-3 mins or until the spices start to smell roasted.
  • Add lime juice and water and sugar and cook partially covered for 25 to 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • Once the mixture is dry, taste and adjust salt and heat. Add in the 1 tsp oil and continue to roast the jackfruit until golden brown on some edges. Serve this in wraps, sandwiches, tacos, nachos.
