It only took my Venezuelan brother-in-law, like thirteen years (okay, maybe not quite *that* many) to teach me the easy way to cook a plantain. These plantains are so unbelievably delicious, it's almost impossible to believe that all you did was pop it in an oven, skin and all! He says I should try them with cheese, but I'm kind of addicted to a hefty sprinkle of salt. Yum.
