Directions

  1. Mix together the red pepper, salt, ginger, minced garlic, chopped onion and 1 tablespoon of the oil in a small bowl.
  2. Peel the plantains and cut on the diagonal into 1/2 inch thick pieces. Place in a large bowl; add the spices and mix well to coat the plantains. If desired, place in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to help develop the flavors.
  3. Heat some of the remaining oil in a large, heavy non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add plantains in a single layer. Sauté until browned, turn over and brown other side. Repeat until all the plantains are cooked.
