Pulled chicken tacos

chicken tacos with lofoten seaweed
Tacos – originally from Mexico – are hugely popular in Norway, with many people looking forward to tacofredag (Taco Friday) at the end of the week. According to a study by national newspaper VG in 2012, around 400,000 Norwegians say that they eat tacos for dinner every single Friday. That’s over 8% of the whole population! This pulled chicken taco is spiced with Lofoten Seaweed’s BBQ & Meat spice blend – a hot and smoky blend of smoked paprika, chilli, garlic and winged kelp. You can make these tacos as mild or as spicy as you like by altering the toppings to suit your preference. Consider doubling this recipe if you have friends over – 6 tacos might not be enough!
Makes 6 tacos


400g chicken breast
6 corn tortillas
200g pickled red cabbage
30g rocket leaves
50g pickled jalapeños
1 lime
1 sweetcorn cob, cooked
1 bunch of fresh coriander
100g natural yoghurt
BBQ & Meat spice blend


Preheat the oven to 180°C. Cut the chicken breasts in halves, drizzle with oil and season with the BBQ & Meat spice blend.
Line a baking tray with baking paper and roast the chicken for 10 – 15 minutes, then allow to cool. With two forks, shred the chicken meat and season again with the BBQ & Meat spice blend, and the juice from half of the lime.
Remove the corn from the cob, and slice the coriander and jalapeños into small pieces.
Heat the grill pan over a high heat and toast the tortillas for 30 seconds on each side.
Assemble the tacos. Lay the pulled chicken on the tortillas, followed by the cabbage, rocket leaves and sweetcorn, then top with the coriander and jalapeños. Drizzle the yoghurt over the top and serve with lime quarters.
