Plantain and Cornmeal Patties

Plantains are a Caribbean staple. Fried, boiled, baked when ripe or green it is good mood food most definitely. I love my plantains it's a given and I'm always looking for ways to create meals centered around this gorgeous food. With a crispy bread crumb outer coating and a sweet and savory inside this pattie can be used as bread substitute in a sandwich or just simply a main part of any meal. Here's my recipe. Ingredients 4 ripe firm plantains 1/2 cup fine cornmeal 1/2 cup hot water 1/4 oil 1tsp salt 1/2 tsp black pepper 1/2 tsp garlic powder 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs Pinch Paprika Method

●Cut each end off of the plantains cut in halves and place in a pot of boiling water for 15mins or until soft

●When plantains are soft remove from water and cool. When cool add peel and slice and add to a bowl.

●Add all the other ingredients except the breadcrumbs and mash plantains till everything is properly incorporated.

●Roll dough into balls approximately 15 balls and flatten using your palms. Dip patties in breadcrumbs and place on a greased sheet to bake.

●Place patties in the oven at 240 degrees and bake for approximately 15 minutes.
(Do not over bake it will make patties hard)

●Remove from oven and Serve with desire topping hot. I served with Artesian Lettuce Saltfish buljol (link here ) .
