220 oztins of young green jackfruit in brine(2x 560g tins)
2Tbspshawarma spice(recipe below)
2tspapple cider vinegar
1tspcoarse sea salt
Drain your jackfruit and rinse thoroughly. Drain for a few minutes to remove any excess water.
Coat your jackfruit in shawarma spice and add your oil, vinegar, and salt. Marinate for at least an hour, or up to 24 hours.
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with foil.
Place your marinated jackfruit on the sheet and bake for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes use two forks to shred the jackfruit. Return to the oven for an additional 15 minutes, or until the texture of the jackfruit is like dry shredded chicken.
Remove from the oven, cool, and freeze - or for immediate use, place under the broiler for 2-4 minutes until smoky and crispy.
Can be frozen for up to 3 months. Defrost and place under the broiler for 5 minutes or so until reheated.
