Baked Yellow Plantains (Maduros Asados)

User Rating 4 Star Rating (1 Review)


Here is a very simple, yet delicious way to enjoy sweet yellow plantains. You can also roast the plantains on a grill. You can also use garlic salt or seasoned salt in place of regular salt.

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 43 minutes


  • 6 yellow plantains (skins on and uniform in size)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Without peeling or cutting the plantain in half, cut a slit lengthwise down the plantain.
  3. Wrap the plantains in tinfoil.
  4. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes. The plantains should be soft, but not mushy.
  5. Let the plantains cool slightly then peel off the skin.
  6. Arrange the cooked plantains on a serving platter. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  7. Serve hot.
Serves: Makes 6 servings.

Good side dish, Member mellow_everest

I have used this recipe twice, the first time exactly as specified and it turned out very good served with a spicy fish dish. The second time I made this I was having a more subdued main so I added cajun spice mix onto the baked plantain to add some flavour. A versatile recipe you can play with.
