Coco Salmon Braised- Plantain

Braised plantain is a common street food in Côte d’Ivoire. It usually eaten with roasted peanuts and it is so yummy. For this week, I decided to put it aside a pan seared salmon. An unexpected combination that even surprised me. At first I wanted to fry the plantain,  you know I love my “alloco” (fried plantain) but, because salmon is already fatty, I decided to cook it in the oven. Best decision in the SinabaLab (my culinary laboratory). Combine those 2 in a plate and “BOOM”, a pure delicacy. Alright let’s get cooking in the SinabaLab.
