I am super excited to bring you guys this recipe, I created it about two weeks ago because I had lots of excess plantains at home. I have recreated the recipe about 3 times since then and it turns out great every time.  feel free to experiment with nutmeg, onions, Cinnamon, fish, shrimp etc in the recipe.


  • 1 overripe plantain
  • 1 table spoon flour or oatmeal powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg

I was very excited when
Fadekemi hit me up on twitter with a fresh plantain fufu recipe; it’s something that never crossed my mind prior. I set out to buy plantains and after a few trials  here we are.

Recipe Of The Day: Plantain and Avocado Appetizer
1/8/2014 10:34:41 AM

This is a quick appetizer, it’s a great time saver and unassumingly gourmet-esque. You can also use this plantain frying method for shaped plantains, after the plantain has been pressed down use a cookie cutter to cut out desired shape before re-frying. You may also seve the avocado mix as a dip with the plantains  on the side.


  • 1 large unripe plantain

  • 5 Cooked shrimps

  • 1/2 of a large avocado pear

  • 1/2 of a small habanera pepper- finely chopped (optional)

  • Salt to taste

Get Directions When you continue after the cut:
