Ripe Plantain

Of all the flavours in the Caribbean and other tropical places the plantain is the one food that is universally adored.

Around the world plantains are boiled, roasted or most commonly fried. Find a way to add one to the BBQ and you will not be disappointed. Fried sweet plantains are eaten on the side with dishes like stew peas and rice or ackee and saltfish.

The trick to making delicious fried plantain is to know which ones to choose. It’s all about how the skin looks; choose from firmer green plantain, to one with a sturdy yellowish tone, or go for one that looks more beaten up for a sweeter taste.

Plantain can be added to your diet as a replacement for the common potato. Not only are they far more delicious they are nutritionally more superior. They contain a richer source of fibre as well as vitamin A, C and B6, magnesium and potassium.
