Plantains are typically used for cooking savoury dishes. They are eaten in parts of South America, Africa and South-East Asia. They are cooked in similar ways to potatoes and can be steamed, boiled or fried. Here they are coated in breadcrumbs, but they are commonly fried without them. They are traditionally served to accompany grilled meats.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
5 large green plantain bananas
4 large eggs
2 cups dried breadcrumbs
60g butter
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Method

  1. Preheat a gas barbecue grill plate to medium.
  2. Cut the plantain bananas in half lengthwise.
  3. Lightly beat the eggs in a large shallow bowl. Place the breadcrumbs on a tray.
  4. Dip the plantain halves first into the egg and then roll to coat in the breadcrumbs, pressing to coat all over.
  5. Heat the butter and vegetable oil together in a small saucepan, until the butter has melted.
  6. Grease the grill plate with half of the butter mixture. Cook the plantain for 3–5 minutes on one side, drizzle with the remaining butter mixture, then turn and cook the other side for a further 3–5 minutes, or until golden brown and soft.
