- 2 very ripe plantains
1/2 cup cream of coconut
2 tbsp. lime juice
1 tsp. grated lime zest
Dash ground red pepper
1/2 cup shredded sweetened coconut, toasted*
*To toast the coconut, sprinkle a can of sweet coconut onto a small baking pan. Bake for 5 min. at 350 stirring once.
-Cut the ends off the plantains. Then cut a slit lengthwise into the peel (without cutting the plantain) and remove the peel. Cut the plantains horizontally. (Like a banana split)
-Arrange the halves on a greased grill rack. Grill for 5 min. on each side, or until lightly charred.
-Stir together cream of coconut, lime juice, lime zest, and red pepper. Drizzle over the grilled plantain halves. Sprinkle with the toasted coconut.
