Smoked Plantain

My newest addiction! We made plantain for the Haitian fundraiser. The concept of the smoking was very last minute. Everything in the kitchen should always have the chance to see a smoker and this time we stumbled upon something great! Not sure it has been done before but it is fantastic! We finish it with a little chili lime salt/sugar mixture. Depending on how smoky you want it you can score the plantains skin or smoke it peeled.

Yum, that sounds delicious.

Was it still soft on the inside, or was it drier like plantain chips?

Yeah, I grilled plantains once and they ended up like hockey pucks. Did they stay soft?

the plantains wern't that soft at all. they still had the banana consistency with a slightly soft warm exterior. Again, i prefer em peeled then smoked for 1/2 an hour, sliced, then fried to seal in all there goodness.

I had the sticky toffee pudding with smoked plantain the other night at the Hoof. outstanding is all i have to say. The Plantain took on a very sweet banana flavour and the smoke was very strong but just perfect for the dish.
