Tacos are about eating with your hands, really getting into the experience and indulging in delicious flavours and textures. We love using jackfruit for this recipe as the “fruit” really absorbs all the spices, flavouring and adds a great texture to the mix. Jackfruit is also a good source of vitamin C, potassium, dietary fibre, and other important vitamins and minerals. These tacos are an all-round favourite for the summer days and evenings here at our home. Best shared with friends and accompanied by sparkling water with fresh lime and mint.

Fresh salsa recipe
Add 1 tsp of olive oil to the pan as well as the corn and cook for 5 minutes or until golden brown and slightly charred. Once the corn is cooked, add it back to the serving bowl. Finely dice a quarter of the red onion and chop up the cherry tomatoes as finely as possible.
Mix it all into the corn with the chopped coriander, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. Allow to marinate in all that flavour until served.
Marinated jackfruit recipe
Once the jackfruit liquid has been strained, add it to the hot pan. Add the remaining ingredients - smoked paprika, coriander powder, turmeric powder, cinnamon powder, garlic powder and freshly chopped thyme. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until deliciously crispy and golden brown.
Finish with a juicy squeeze of fresh lime, roll it up, put it in your mouth and enjoy the burst of flavours!
