    My Private Note


    Serves: 6


    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 ripe plantains, the skins must be black
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 2 tablespoons demerara sugar (brown sugar crystals)
    • 8 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
    • salt & pepper (optional)
    • cinnamon (to garnish)


    1. 1
      Peel the plantains and cut them crossways into slices 2.5cm thick.
    2. 2
      Lay each plantain on a large sheet of foil, keeping the slices together so they stay in their original shape.
    3. 3
      Smear each plaintain with the butter (or dot it over if it's hard) and sprinkle with the sugar.
    4. 4
      Make a gondola shape round each plantain with the foil, then pour over the orange juice and grind salt and pepper on top if using.
    5. 5
      Wrap the foil completely round the plantains so they're securely sealed inside. (You can prepare to this stage up to 24 hours ahead.).
    6. 6
      Put the foil parcels on the barbecue rack and cook for 30 minutes until the plantains are softened (to check if they're ready, open a parcel and test with the point of a knife).
    7. 7
      Sprikle with salt, pepper and cinnamon.

      It was very easy to make this great-tasting dish & I must admit that I was probably overly generous with the cinnamon, but then we do like that particular spice! One thing I did add, was a bit of orange zest added to the OJ! Thanks for a great treat! [Made & reviewed for one of my groupmates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #42]
