Select black plantains for optimum flavor and tenderness. We do not recommend substituting bananas for plantains.
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 soft black plantains, cut into 1-inch-thick slices (about 3 1/2 cups)
1/3 cup aromatic peanut oil made with USA-GROWN PEANUTS
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter made with USA-GROWN PEANUTS
1 tablespoon rum
1 teaspoon lime zest
1/4 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter
Garnishes: chopped USA-GROWN PEANUTS, lime wedges
How to Make It
Whisk together brown sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Add plantain slices, tossing to coat.
Cook plantains in hot oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Transfer to serving plates, using a slotted spoon.
Combine honey and next 5 ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated and smooth. Remove from heat; stir in butter until smooth. Spoon sauce over plantains. Serve immediately. Garnish, if desired.
