“These are a traditional South American side dish. I serve them alongside a plate full of rice, meat, and boiled salt potatoes. They add a nice sweetness to the meal.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 very ripe plantains (the skin of the plantain should be brownish black)
  • oil
  • salt (optional)

Directions

  1. Heat approximately 1/4" oil in a medium skillet over medium heat.
  2. Peel the plantain, and cut at an angle, making slices about 3/4" thick.
  3. Brown plantain in oil, approximately 2 minutes a side, or until both sides are brown.
  4. When browned, remove from skillet and place on a paper towel covered plate to drain the excess oil off.
  5. Serve hot.
  6. The traditional way is to serve plain, but I like to sprinkle them with a little bit of salt for a nice, salty sweet taste.
