  • 2 cans jackfruit in brine or water


  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon Adobo sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Drain, rinse, and dry jackfruit. Shred jackfruit with fingers breaking up the seeds. The consistency is similar to a shredded "meat" product. In a medium bowl add shredded jackfruit and marinade ingredients. Marinate for one hour or overnight. The longer you marinate the more flavorful the jackfruit will become.
  • Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add oil to the heated skillet and add marinated jackfruit. Brown jackfruit, stirring frequently until browned on all sides, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and serve. Place the shredded jackfruit in a lettuce wrap, tortilla, on top of nacho's, in a salad, quesadilla, the options are endless.
