Makes about 24 pieces
What you need:
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 medium-ripe plantains, peeled and grated
2 tablespoons olive oil
What you do:
- In a medium-sized bowl, combine the garlic, peanut butter, lime juice, salt, oregano, allspice, cayenne, and pepper, and blend to a paste. Add the grated plantains and mix until well combined. Shape the mixture into small fritters, using about 1 tablespoon of the mixture for each.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place the fritters in the hot oil and press down on them lightly with a metal spatula. Fry until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels, then transfer to a baking sheet and place in a warm oven until all the plantain bites are cooked. Serve hot.
