Roasted Plantain, Fish And Peppered Sauce By Pat

A Serving of roasted plantain with fish and peppered sauce
Dear Aunty Eya,
I have been carefully following your blog silently and I want to use this opportunity to thank you.  I am one person that always complained that we don’t have many recipes to make good meals but this thinking has changed since I encountered your blog.  Also, my family now enjoys sumptuous meals with assorted dishes.

 It is in this light that I decided to share this special South South menu.  I hope
you will publish it for the delight of other WC members. 
Thanks.
 ROASTED PLANTAIN, FISH AND PEPPERED SAUCE
 To Prepare Plantain:
I use the half ripe plantain.  Wash and peel the plantain, rub some salt all over the plantain (sparingly) and place on the oven.  Keep checking and turning the plantain until it turned brown.  Browning of the plantain is an indication that its cooked and ready.  Set aside.

 To Prepare Fish:
·         Ingredients:
  Tatashe (red capsicum pepper), 1 bulb fresh tomato, some bonnet pepper, onions, 2 bay leaves, 5 garlic cloves peeled, cubes.
 ·         Blend all ingredients together.
 ·         In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together, add salt and 2 tbsp veggy or olive oil.  Stir the ingredients to mix properly.
 ·         Rubb the mixture all over the fish.  Put some inside the head and belly where the guts were removed.  Then leave to marinate for like  30-60 mins.
 ·         Place the fish on the oven or barbecue grill and leave to cook for like 10 mins on each side.
 ·         Serve with the peppered Sauce and plantain.

 To Prepare the Peppered Sauce. 
·         Use the same ingredients you used for the fish but do not add veggy or olive oil.  The only difference is that you will boil the ingredients for like 10 mins and turn off the cooker.  Then add enough palm oil and its ready to be served.
 Pls find attached the few pics I remembered to take before the meal was sumptuously consumed.

Thanks

  6. Nice one gurl! This one na PHC style... Elekahia is their centre...

    Pls does the fish get really 'done' inside when roasted whole? I tried it once and it was a disaster.. maybe cos I brought the fish out of the freezer and put it in...dunno...

      It's because you did not thaw the fish first,you answered your own question.

      Yes, it gets cooked inside within 10 mins. You don't allow it to become very dry to make it juicy. If its frozen, you must thaw it before marinating!

    Too bad, Eya. Stop deleting comments. That's very immature of you.

      Sorry about the pot. the pot got burnt during cooking sometime ago and efforts to make it white prooved abortive. Next time, I will learn to empty content into a more presentable cookware or dish. Hope explanation is ok?

      Also try to accommodate others both rich and poor! There are families still using stove in Naija and I am sure you know this! I don't think its a crime to use kerosene stove?

      @Bebe, why are you leaving in falsehood? Tell me a woman that doesn't have a burnt pot and I tell you that you are a liar! Its just that in the rush of trying to snap pics of the meals for your delight, I forgot to empty content into a more presentation dish or cookware. You can say something bad in a nice way!

    Thank you very much. And she's always using the sympathy cards. Her thick voltrons cannot see through it. And when you mention it they call you a hater.
    It's one thing to like controversy and not care but it's another to crave for it and pretend as if you are the victim.
    And that is my BIG problem with Eya. Over last week, the blog was quiet cos she made people believe that she doesn't like chaos and was also deleting comments.
    Now after the blog became peaceful she started posting controversial topics, knowing very well that it would not bring peaceful comments. The most surprising thing is that this time round she is not deleting the hateful comments cos she wants to increase traffic. When you point out these things to her, you are labeled a hater. Of all her voltrons, it's only Deborah I respect, cos she was the only one that could question some of her moves and eventhough things were clarified later I will always respect Debora for that cos I know she is someone who does not blindly follow

    @Mabel, Its Corino, made in Italy. it has about 4 stages of regulation from lowest to highest heat. When you are roasting in a cooker oven, you must check it regularly to avoid being burnt. It may be that you didn't check when you were supposed to do.

      From the first knob on the top left, you lit a match, turn it on and place the match on the mouth of the lower or upper oven depending on the one you are using. As you know, it has two ovens - upper and lower and the one knob controls both. When the turn the knob to the left, it lits the lower oven and when you turn it to the right, it lit the upper oven. In anycase, you must use a match to set up the heat. hope the explanation helps.
