DIRECTIONS

  • Peel the plantains and cut them crossways into slices 2.5cm thick.
  • Lay each plantain on a large sheet of foil, keeping the slices together so they stay in their original shape.
  • Smear each plaintain with the butter (or dot it over if it's hard) and sprinkle with the sugar.
  • 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.
  • Wrap the foil completely round the plantains so they're securely sealed inside. (You can prepare to this stage up to 24 hours ahead.).
  • 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).
  • Sprikle with salt, pepper and cinnamon.
