I found this recipe on the internet because plantains have been in season and it's something I rarely eat but they are truly delicious, so I'm making a point of trying them different ways. I tried this recipe tonight as a side dish with salmon and it's really delightful. Plantains are so versatile - you can keep them on hand for a long time and they don't spoil quickly like their banana cousins. Leave them until the skin is yellow and you can peel them. Some say you can wait til the skin is black and still enjoy them. Nutritious and delicious.
