Sailboat Galley – Breadfruit Chips

Breadfruit is an extremely versatile fruit that can be prepared and eaten at all stages of development and maturity. Mature fruit is the most desirable to use for most dishes, due to its potato-like texture.

Breadfruit chips are made with the dry fleshy pulp of the breadfruit when green, and buttery when half-ripe or ripe. If you slice the green breadfruit chips thinly and add salt, the taste is similar to potato chips. When sliced thick, it tastes like freshly baked bread.

Breadfruit is an excellent source of dietary fiber which is important for smooth digestion. There are also several health benefits to get from eating breadfruit chips. This soft and mushy vegetable tastes delicious when steamed, fried, baked, barbequed, or grilled! With its high nutrition content, it offers you many health benefits as well.

How to prepare it:

  • Slice the breadfruit quarters thinly. If you have a mandoline onboard, use it!
  • Heat oil in a wide pan (like your Magma 9-1/2 inch frying pan) on your stove on medium-high heat. I use coconut oil and start with ¼ cup.
  • Lay your breadfruit slices in the hot oil in a single layer. Because I use a mandoline, my slices are very thin, and brown quickly. Flip to brown on both sides. You will notice the slices start to curl up the darker brown they get.
  • When the chips are stiff and light brown, use your tongs to remove your breadfruit chips from the oil and transfer them to a paper towel-covered plate.
  • Repeat for all your slices. Salt and serve!
