20171021 Orange Brown Sugar Glazed Plantain

Orange Brown Sugar Glazed Plantain


    • 2 ripe plantains
    • 1/2 cup orange juice
    • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
    • 1/3 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • pinch salt



  1. Peel and slice the plantains into 1/4 inch pieces, oval shape.

  2. Place the slices of plantain in a container and add all the ingredients, except the butter. Stir and allow it to marinate-for about 15-20 minutes at room temperature.

  3. Heat the butter on a medium/low flame in a wide pan and add the pieces of marinated plantains. Keep the marinade. Fry on both sides until you have a golden color and slightly crisp edges.

  4. After you have the desired golden color, go in with the leftover marinade and bring to a boil. The plantains are fully cooked, so all you have t do is allow the glaze or sauce to thicken up to a consistency you like.

 Note: The more black (and ugly looking) the plantains are, the better they are for use.
