Why I Love This Recipe

In most Caribbean islands plantains are eaten as a side dish with dinner. Make sure the plantains skins have blackened to guarantee the fruit is sweet and tender.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 pounds ripe plantains
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
3 tablespoons dark rum
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cooking Spray


Preheat oven to 350ºF

Peel plantains; diagonally cut plantains in 1/2 inch thick slices.

Arrange plantain slices in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray.

Combine orange juice and next 5 ingredients in a small bowl; stir with a whisk.

Pour juice mixture over plantains. Dot with butter and sprinkle with salt.

Bake at 350ºF for 30 minutes.

Gently turn plantains over with thongs; bake an additional 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
