First recipe from Niue: Breadfruit Chips

Tony took us to a plantation tour, which was amazing (I will post more about it in the next few days) and we went back to our guesthouse with a good stock of locale produce. The first recipe I am proposing is with breadfruit, I heard a lot about this fruit but never cooked it (although I ate it before and found it quite bland).
 Tony told me that I could bake it, boil it or make chips, and since I travelled with olive oil and some luxury salt flakes I decided to go for chips.

Breadfruit needs to be peeled and sliced, Tony peeled it with a machete for me. I cut it into thin slices and pan fried them with a little olive oil (not deep fried) and added some Welsh sea salt flakes. I served it as an appetizer, everybody love it so much that I made it again the evening after. First breadfruit experiment: successful!

And now I leave you with some more images of Niue, till next recipe.

Sorry if I am not replying to all your comments, time and connection are big issues for me at present.
