This fish stir fry is so insanely delicious and super easy to make. I have called it Ownyee’s Island because it is dedicated to my friend Onyinye. It is healthy, simple and makes a great dinner idea.
I’m sorry I have been missing in action. To say I was feeling under the weather is an understatement. I have been down with the flu virus for over a month, well I’m back now and better.
Compliments of the season to you all, this Christmas season I planned to post super easy recipes that can complement our Christmas turkey and chicken.

How to roast plantain
Place peeled plantain in a baking tray and place under the grill on medium-high heat turning at interval till plantain is golden brown and fully cooked. Alternatively, you could make fried plantain, see how to make it here.
