  • 1 large ripe breadfruit
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Water (for boiling)
  • Olive oil or vegetable oil (for frying)


1- Prepare the Breadfruit:

  • Wash the breadfruit thoroughly under running water.
  • Using a sharp knife, carefully peel the skin off the breadfruit.
  • Cut the breadfruit into medium-sized chunks or slices. Remove the core and any seeds if present.

2- Boil the Breadfruit:

  • Place the breadfruit pieces in a large pot filled with enough water to cover them.
  • Add a pinch of salt to the water to season the breadfruit.
  • Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to low and let the breadfruit simmer for about 20-25 minutes, or until the pieces are tender.

3- Drain and Cool:

  • Once the breadfruit is tender, drain it using a colander or a slotted spoon.
  • Allow the breadfruit pieces to cool slightly. They should be soft and easy to mash.

4- Mash the Breadfruit:

  • Transfer the cooked breadfruit to a large mixing bowl.
  • Using a potato masher or fork, mash the breadfruit until it reaches a smooth consistency. You can also use a food processor for this step if preferred.

5- Form into Patties:

  • Divide the mashed breadfruit into small portions and shape them into patties or balls. You can adjust the size based on your preference.

6- Fry the Sopalin:

  • Heat the oil in a frying pan or skillet over medium heat.
  • Once the oil is hot, carefully place the breadfruit patties into the pan, making sure not to overcrowd them.
  • Fry the sopalin patties for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
  • Use a slotted spoon to transfer the fried sopalin onto a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.

7- Serve:

  • Serve the Guadeloupe Sopalin hot as a delicious side dish or snack. You can enjoy them on their own or with your favorite dipping sauce.

8- Optional Seasonings:

  • Feel free to add additional seasonings or spices to the mashed breadfruit mixture before forming the patties. Traditional options include garlic, onion, pepper, or herbs like thyme or parsley.

Enjoy your homemade Guadeloupe Sopalin!
