  • 1 20 0z can of Jackfruit
  • 3 tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp white Rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup Celery thinly chopped
  • 3 tbsp Green Onion
  • 3/4 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 tsp of black pepper powder
  • 1.5 Large sheet of Seaweed or 8 small snack seaweed sheets crumbled or broken up in a food processor


  • -Drain and rinse the jackfruit.
  • -Pull apart the Jackfruit pieces with your hands or with a fork.
  • -Place the Jackfruit in a pan and sauté on medium for 8-10 minutes until it firms up a little and resembles tuna pieces. I like using a top on the pan to Let the jackfruit get cooked through a little more, but not necessary.
  • -Take the jackfruit off heat to cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • -In a food processor or bullet sized blender, blend the seaweed sheets so it becomes a mixture you’d be able to sprinkle, almost like a powder. Not all the pieces will beak apart and some will get stuck, don’t worry it doesn’t have to be perfect, just get it to smaller sized pieces. If you don’t have one of these machines then just crumple the sheets up as much as you can.
  • -Mix all the ingredients together and sprinkle in the seaweed, and mix well.
  • -If you’d like to throw the entire mixture into a food processor to get a more broken down mix, do it, but you don’t need to.
  • -Serve right away, or for best flavor make a day or two in advance, day 2 is even better.
  • -If you’re making a tuna melt, use your bread and cheese of choice, place the jackfruit mixture on one of the bread slices, place cheese on top, place both pieces in the oven and broil for about 3-6 minutes. Just watch to your desired melty toasty-ness.
  • -Enjoy!!
