Ingredients

  • 2-3 Plantains
  • Jerk Seasoning adjust according to preference
  • Oil for drizzling

Stir Fried Onions and Bell pepper (optional)

  • ¼ cup oil
  • ½ medium onion
  • 1 Bell pepper green or red

Instructions

  1. Using a sharp knife cut both ends off the plantain. This will make it easy to grab the skin of the plantains.
  2. Slit a shallow line down the long seam of the plantain; peel only as deep as the peel.
