Plantains in Temptation Sauce

Plantains in Temptation Sauce


2 teaspoons vegetable oil, divided
Cooking Spray
2 cups (1-inch thick) soft black banana slices (about 1 pound), separated
¾ cup sugar
¾ cup water
3/4 cup sherry or balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons grated lime zest
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
1 tablespoon butter

To make

Serve this sweet filling instead of the usual sweet potatoes. Unlike regular bananas, which take two to three days to ripen, bananas take much longer to cook. Choose sufficiently ripe black (rather than green) bananas.
To prepare the bananas, heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a medium skillet covered with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add 1 cup bananas; cook for 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove the bananas; repeat with 1 teaspoon of oil and the remaining bananas. Set aside.To make the sauce, put the sugar in a heavy saucepan and set over medium heat; cook until the sugar is dissolved, stirring as needed to allow the sugar to dissolve evenly (about 9 minutes). Mix the water and vinegar; gently add the vinegar mixture to the sugar, stirring constantly (the mixture will bubble violently). Cook for 2 minutes or until the sugar is dissolved. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons zest, cinnamon, and cloves; increase heat to medium-high. Cook for 25 minutes or until reduced to 1 cup. Add the bananas; cook for 2 minutes or until fully warmed, drizzling the sauce over the bananas. Add the butter and heat until it melts. Garnish with 1/2 teaspoon zest.
