Perfect Plantains

Here’s a recipe for sweet(ish) plantains that can be eaten as a side when you have a BBQ or as a pudding with ice cream or something. The recipe is from one of the cooking programmes on BBC.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe plantains – the skin must be black
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp demerara sugar
  • 8 tbsp freshloy sqeezed orange juice
  • salt & pepper to taste (optional)

Directions:

  1. Peel the plantains and cut them crossways into 2.5 cm thick slices.
  2. Lay each plantain on a large sheet of foil keeping the slices together so it still looks like a whole plantain.
  3. Smear each plantain with butter – or just put little bits on top of them if the butter is hard – and sprinkle them with sugar.
  4. Shape the foil into a little boat around each plantain.
  5. Pour orange juice over the plantains
  6. If eaten with meat, you might want to grind some salt and pepper over them as well.
  7. Wrap the foil so that the plantains are completely enclosed inside. This can be done up to 24hrs before they’re to be cooked!
  8. Put foil parcels on the BBQ rack or in the oven and cook for about 30mins until the plantains are soft.
