Step by Step Directions
Preheat oven to 350º F. Grease 12 muffin cups.
Place plantain slice in each cup, bending slice to line edge of the cup. Repeat with others. Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add green pepper, ají peppers, onion, and garlic. Stir occasionally, until onion is tender. Add bouillon, cilantro, lime juice, tomato, and crabmeat. Mix well; remove from heat. Season to taste with pepper and salt, if desired.
Divide the crabmeat mixture evenly in the center of each muffin cup lined with plantains. Combine eggs and evaporated milk in small glass measure. Pour milk mixture into each muffin cup (use a fork to make room for milk in mold).
Bake for about 25 minutes or until set. Serve warm alone or accompanied with Island Mojo and white rice.
Note: The ripe plantains can be prepared in the microwave: Cut the ends and make an incision in the peel. Wrap in paper towels. Cook one plantain on HIGH (100%) power for 3 minutes, or cook two for 5 minutes.
