GRILLED BREADFRUIT WITH IDEAL PALS (ACKEE/CODFISH/CALLALOO)

Sunday’s brunch was quite a Jamaican affair. I went with one of my favorites, breadfruit which was roasted the previous day. This was done in oven at 450 degrees fahrenheit for approximately one hour. Peeled the tropical beauty and sliced:

Brushed slices with a little olive oil, sprinkled with a pinch of salt and then allowed my grill pan to do the work:

Served grilled slices of breadfruit with Jamaica’s national dish, ackee and codfish with slices of fried plantains, steamed callaloo (Jamaican spinach) and a slice of nature’s butter, avocado.

N.B РHistory books have stated that the breadfruit plant/tree was brought to Jamaica  from Tahiti in 1793. Over the years, this fruit has flourished in abundance. The young fruit is often boiled and used in soups and the mature version is ideal for roasting on an open flame (coal/wood), on stove top or oven.

Breadfruit is a great substitute for rice or bread. It is loaded with fiber, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.
