Combine yellow onion with lime juice; marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour. Drain onions and save lime juice.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When oil is hot, add onion and cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown, 12 to 14 minutes.
Add apple juice, plantain, apple, yam, ginger and garlic. Simmer 15 to 20 minutes, until vegetables and fruit are tender. Stir in brown sugar and reserved lime juice. Simmer another minute. Garnish with coconut and serve.
