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. Today I’ll be sharing this fish stir fry and roasted plantain  recipe. I’m sure you are wondering why it is called Ownyee’s Island, well it is my friend’s recipe. 

Every time is not just for roasted plantain and peanuts. Since I got this recipe from my friend, I have tried it so many times and it has never failed. It is always a show-stopper and like I said earlier it is super easy and very tasty.  If you try this fish stir fry and roasted plantain at home please let me know how it turns out.
