“I've had fried plantains many times, but recently I was at an ethnic restaurant where the plantain chips were thin and crunchy like potato chips. They were delicious-- I just had to run home and figure out how to make them! I serve mine up with mango salsa, for an extra kick of island flavor!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine salsa ingredients in a small bowl. Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Carefully remove the peel from the plantains (this is easier if you score the peel with a pairing knife first).
  3. Using a mandolin, thinly slice the plantains on the diagonal (the thinner the plantains are, the crunchier they will be).
  4. Fill a heavy pot with about 1 inch of oil. Heat on med/ high heat to 360 degrees. Carefully add the plantain slices and fry until crisped.
  5. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. When all of the plantain chips have fried, transfer to a serving plate and serve immediately with the mango salsa.
