  • Thaw frozen jackfruit overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Once thawed, squeeze excess water from the jackfruit and set aside.
  • In a large pan, add ketchup, light agave, liquid smoke and liquid aminos and heat over medium heat, taking care not to boil mixture.
  • When sauce begins to bubble, add jackfruit to mixture and until it bubbles again. Remove from heat.
  • On stovetop, place shishito peppers directly on the burner, quickly charring all the sides of peppers until they soften. Once cool, remove stems, slice lengthwise and remove seeds and membranes. Set aside.
  • To make the slaw, combine cabbages, carrots, bell pepper, pickle juice, light agave, mayonnaise and celery salt to a medium mixing bowl. Incorporate thoroughly. This can be made the night before for a stronger flavor.
  • To assemble, separate bun tops from bottoms. Spoon 3/4 cup BBQ Jackfruit on to the bottom of the bun, followed by 1/2 cup Pickle Jar Slaw, one Blistered Shishito Pepper and, lastly, the top of the bun.
  • Enjoy!
