Such a treat to find plantains in my local supermarket! In Tokyo you have to travel to find products that aren’t usually used in Japanese cooking and these were 100 yen so was really happy to see them. Plantains are from the same family as bananas but lower in sugar and more starchy. Fried in olive oil they are the great little side or snack and with some lime salt they were magic. Very easy to make so do try next time you see some.
