Let's Watch Grilled Plantains

Step 1 Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Slice the plantains in half vertically, leaving the peel on. This will hold the plantain together and ensure they don’t fall apart on the grill.

Step 2 Brush the exposed banana halves with coconut oil. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Step 3 Start grilling the plantain with the flesh side down. Grill for 5-7 minutes until grill marks form and the plantain slightly softens. Turn over to peel side and grill for about 1-3 minutes. You know it’s done when the plantain begins to pull away from the peel. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired. These can be served with a savory dish when topped with salt or become a sweet dish with cinnamon, honey, whipped cream, or ice cream.
