2 large ripe plantains, peeled
2 cups coconut milk
1 cup, white onion, julienned
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 whole habanero peppers, deseeded
1 bunch wild basil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
4 medium yellowtail snappers, scaled & cleaned
Water for coconut milk and softening of the plantain in the Mata bowl, as needed
Peel and boil the green and ripe plantain in a pot of salted water until soft. In a saucepot, add the coconut milk, onion, garlic, habanero and basil and cook over medium heat. Bring to a gentle simmer stirring occasionally. To the rich coconut broth, add the whole fish and continue to simmer until the fish is cooked. Remove the cooked plantain from water and place them in a food processor while still warm. Add water and salt as necessary. Remove the smooth plantain (Hudut) from the bowl and reserve. Serve soup while hot and drop spoonfuls of the Hudut into soup and enjoy!
