  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 3 medium mirlitons, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 2 large onions, peeled, halved, and cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
