DIRECTIONS

  • Heat approximately 1/4" oil in a medium skillet over medium heat.
  • Peel the plantain, and cut at an angle, making slices about 3/4" thick.
  • Brown plantain in oil, approximately 2 minutes a side, or until both sides are brown.
  • When browned, remove from skillet and place on a paper towel covered plate to drain the excess oil off.
  • Serve hot.
  • 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.
