This was a delicious plantain recipe. Loved the whole buttered-rum element with the orange.

These were so good. I served them as a side to a Carbbean meal so omitted the creme fraiche. Along with recipe#373817#373817 recipe#160331#160331 and a coconut lime rice. Made for ZWT 5 for team Zaar Chow Hounds
