Breadfruit fricassee

Fricassee was originally a stew of meat, shellfish, or fish or vegetables in a white or brown sauce. The recipe that we are offering you today fits perfectly into the original definition even if the latter has evolved over time and includes many more varieties. It is a recipe that values the breadfruit and allows it to be eaten in a different form from the usual preparation of eating the breadfruit after it has been boiled in water.
