Score a shallow X on the bottom of your peach. In a bowl, that is big enough to submerge your peach, place boiling water in the bowl and carefully put you peach in (from a large spoon is a safe way) the boiling water.
Let it sit for 5-10 seconds to soften the peel and pull the peach out of the water. When cool enough to handle, gently grab the corner of the peach skin, between your fingers or with the edge of the knife and your finger (carefully), where you scored it with the X and peel back, it should come off easily, if not, give it another few seconds in the bowl of hot water. When peach is peeled, discard the water and wash and dry the bowl.Cut the peach into ¼" cubes, place in the bowl
Prep your plantain
Use your knife to score all the way down the peel, remove the peel and scrape off any of the peel that is not coming off freely. Place plantain on a cutting board and cut along its length. Place both halves flat side down to give them stability. Plantains can be slippery and its better to cut them with as much stability as you can provide. Cut plantains into ¼" cubes. Place in a microwavable container and cook for 1 ½ - 3 minutes (depending on your microwave)
Add plantain to the diced peaches.
Chiffonade cilantro and add to bowl, add lime juice, salt maple syrup and sambal olek.Stir with a spoon. Cool in the fridge and allow the flavours to marry.
Serve over salmon, pork, chicken, jerk jack fruit, roasted yams....enjoy
