grilled plantains

In nearly every island in the Caribbean you travel too, there is a strong chance that you will come across vendors on the side to road selling grilled plantains. Grilled plantains recipe has been around in the Caribbean for centuries – my grandma did it and so did her mother. Back in the day when flour was still a luxury to item have at home, grilled or roasted plantains were substituted for bread.

Plantains can be cooked at any stage of ripeness and they’re a great source of folate, a nutrient which plays a vital role in cancer prevention. Try your hand this recipe – you will love it.

Prepare grill to medium heat. Cut plantains in half lengthwise. Cut plantain halves in half crosswise. Combine butter, sugar, and pepper; brush evenly over cut sides of plantain sections.
