West-African Sweet and Savoury Plantain balls filled with White Fish

Prepare the plantain by cutting the head and tail off the plantain. With the skin on, place in a pot of boiling water, add some salt and cook for 4 - 5 minutes, or until the plantain is soft. Drain, remove skins and set aside.

Prepare the Fish Base In a separate bowl, combine the onions, garlic and spices. Slice the fish into thin strips and add the fish to the onion and spices. Mix well to coat the fish with the spices.

In a pan on medium heat, heat 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and fry the fish mix for a few minutes, until the fish is done. This should take no more than 5 minutes, given the thin slices of the fish. Remove the fish from the heat and add it to the drained plantains. Mash the plantain and fish mix together. Add the second teaspoon of coconut oil to the pan, form the plantain and fish mash into balls, and fry until golden brown.
