Spicy Jackfruit and Pineapple Skewers

Makes 6, Serves 2

Ingredients:

1 tin young jackfruit, 300g drained weight

300g pineapple, cut into 2cm cubes (18 pieces in total)

1 tbsp vegetable oil

Marinade / Coating Sauce:

2 tbsp Wing Yip Light Soy Sauce

1-2 tbsp Mai Siam Sriracha Sauce, depending on how spicy you want them

½ tsp Wing Yip Sesame Oil

1 tsp white sesame seeds

6 small skewers

Spicy Jackfruit and Pineapple Skewers 2Method:

  1. Soak the skewers in cold water for at least 1 hour before assembling.
  2. Drain the jackfruit and cut any large chunks in half so that you have 12 pieces.
  3. Mix together the marinade ingredients and then add the jackfruit and pineapple. Mix well to ensure all of the pieces are evenly coated.
  4. Starting with the pineapple, thread the pineapple and jackfruit onto the skewers so that you have 3 pieces of pineapple and 2 pieces of jackfruit per skewer.
  5. Heat a frying or griddle pan over a medium-high heat and add the vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, lay the skewers carefully in the pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side until they have started to caramelise and are hot.
  6. Sprinkle over the sesame seeds and then serve immediately.
