Spicy Plantains is my recipe of the day with the blogging group Eat the World. Once a month the group posts authentic culinary recipes of a given country. Or recipes inspired by foods eaten there. This month our recipes have the flavor of the Dominican Republic. The island nation is located in the Caribbean sea.

Spicy Plantains

One of the favorite recipes of the region is pan-fried ripe plantains. I have cooked up a version of that which includes spiced (hot) honey. Along with candied jalapeno slices. I have a recipe for those if you would like to use it: Cowboy Candy. Or you can usually buy these at the market now in jars.

I like to serve these as a side dish with Caribbean foods, Latin foods, or even Tex-Mex foods. They go deliciously with any of these. I used a Sriracha honey, but you can use any “hot honey”. These have been made popular by Nashville hot chicken. Or you can add a little sriracha to the recipe when using ordinary honey.
