How to make Gizdodo

My first encounter with this delicacy was in Dublin, Ireland. This new sensation is winning the hearts of many at home and in the Diaspora. The combination of gizzard and dodo (plantain), with a spicy-sweet paste, is perfect as lunch or a side dish. There are several ways to create this delicacy. Mix and match ingredients until you find what works best for you. As usual, please share what you come up with!
