RobbyRobbs Sweet and Fire Plantains

I have been reading Robb Walsh book Sex, Death and Oysters. In it he refers to a Dish at Gallitores in New Orleans of deep fried Eggplant wedges served table side with a mixture of sugar and Tabasco. Since I did not have Eggplant handy I did have some leftover Plantains from a Mufungo I made recently. I sliced them up fried and served with the mixture.

The sweet hot taste was enjoyed by all that tried.

Instructions

  1. 1Peel and slice Plantains 1/4" thick and soak in salted water while oil comes to 350 degrees.
  2. 2Mix powdered sugar and Tabasco together in small bowl.
  3. 3Fry Plantains in hot oil until edges start to turn brown, remove and drain on cooling rack.
  4. 4Serve warm Plantains on platter with bowl of dipping sauce.
