Recipe type: appetizer, side dish
  • Plantains (The skin should be mottled with yellow & black)
  • dash of salt
  • Canola Oil or Coconut oil
  1. Cut off the ends of the
  2. plantains
  3. Remove the skin by running a knife down the middle and peeling back the skin.
  4. Dice the plantains at a diagonal.
  5. Place them in a bowl and sprinkle on a few dashes of salt. Toss the plantains and let them sit while the oil heats.
  6. In a skillet (cast iron works best) heat your oil on medium high heat. Just enough to halfway cover the plantains is fine.
  7. When the oil is really hot, place the plantain in the oil in a single layer. *Mine started to stick to the bottom of the pan so you may want to move them around a bit when you first put them in the oil.*
  8. Let them cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Reduce the heat if they are cooking to fast or starting to burn.
  9. When done, drain on paper towels.
