Grilled Plantains stuffed with Smoked Tuna

IMG_00002144 One of those evenings, I thought “what can I make with plantain?” without wasting time I went online, checked a few plantain delicacies and recipes, thought outside the spice box with some mix and match and That’s it !! Grilled plantain stuffed with smoked tuna. 

This is really simple and can be made in less than an hour. Check this out.

I used 2 plantains, bell peppers, mixed herbs, ground spice and smoked tuna.

So how did I do it?…. I preheated my oven at 180’ C for 10 mins, peeled the plantain, placed on a non-stick oven tray, into the oven, and then grilled for 25 min.

For the sauce, I added 2 spoons of extra virgin olive oil to the wok. Added the bell peppers then stir fried for 10 mins. While this was frying, I spiced it up with some mixed herbs, a lil bit of hot curry and liquid maggi.  3 mins later, I added the smoked tuna then stir fried for an additional 5 mins, by this time, the plantain was grilled with a golden brown color. I removed the plantain from the oven, allowed to cool then I sliced in the middle and stuffed it with the tuna sauce. ….

 With a glass of freshly pressed pineapple juice, this was a perfect evening…..
