Optional, to taste:


  1. CARAMELIZE: Heat the bacon fat in a skillet at low-medium heat. Add the plantain slices and sprinkle with sea salt. Cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.

If you don’t have pure coconut cream to hand, try scooping the cream from the top of a chilled can of preservative & and emulsifier free coconut milk, instead.
