How To Prepare Bannan Duece/Fried Sweet Plantain

So here’s one of the reasons I post so many how to prepare meals, I was raised with a Haitian mother and never learned how to cook Haitian food, so now that I’m married and my husband loves his Haitian food, I have to learn and regret never paying attention to my mom in the kitchen.

I’m happy to say I’m getting better so hopefully these post are helping you guys out as well. 🙂 So here is the recipe for preparing one of my favorite dishes, It’s fairly easy but I know a lot of people who really have no idea how to make it. If you need a Piklis  recipe go here.

  • 1-2 Semi ripe plantain (Not the green plantain) 
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1/8 cup of pikliz
 Yielding 2-3 people
In either a frying pan or a small sauce heat the oil on medium high. While oil is heating, rinse plantain and cut the end off. Then using the knife slice down the plantain from top to bottom. The peel the skin off the plantain. Since this plantain is softer the skin should be easy to remove.

Once the skin has been removed, cut the plantain into diagonal slices.

Repeat process with second plantain and place into hot oil. Be sure to watch the plantain and turn often because it cooks fairly quickly. Once plantain is cooked remove from oil and drain on paper towel. Repeat process and serve with pikliz.
