Grilled Plantains Serves 6
Plantains look like large green bananas but have a higher starch content and tart taste. Ripe plantains are yellow with black patches and may appear bruised. To peel a plantain, first cut off the ends then make five lengthwise slits in the peel being careful not to cut into the flesh. Lift up the tip of the peel and run your thumb along one of the length-wise cuts, pulling back and removing the peel.
