  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons Pure Wesson® Canola Oil
  • 1 tablespoon jerk seasoning
  • 6 large ripe plantains, peeled (6 large = about 4 pounds)

Cook's Tips

Use ripe plantains that are firm and yellow in color with black specks. Ripen plantains more quickly by placing in a brown paper bag with an apple. Close bag loosely and place in a warm area.
