This is more a technique than a recipe per se. However, if you love the taste of fried sweet plantains but don't want all the fat, this is the way to go. For those less familiar with plantains, they would best be described as a cooking banana. These pair well with almost and Caribbean entree. For the best results, make sure you have a really ripe plantain one that is all yellow with a good number of brown spots. Though I have portioned this as a half plantain per serving, one could easily eat a whole one alone.
