For the bun, peel the plantain and slice into 2 inch thick rounds.  Bring a large pot of water to boil.  Boil plantain rounds for about 5 minutes, until soft.  Remove plantains and smash flat with back of a plate.  Season with salt.  In a skillet, melt a few tbs of coconut oil over medium high heat.  Fry flattened plantains until brown and crispy, about 3 minutes per side.
