easy appetizer recipe, plantains
Cut the ends of the plantains and then gently slice a seam of the plantain. With the back of a spoon remove the green tough skin. (You may have to create another slice if it is stubborn).
Next, cut plantain into 10-12 even chunks.
Add oil to a pan, until it is about 1 ½ -2 inches thick. (Use a medium pan and work in batches to save on oil.)
Heat oil over medium high heat (you want hot oil).
Add in plantains, about 5-6 in a batch. Fry on each side 2-3 minutes or until it’s a slight orange color.
Remove from heat and with a flat heavy object, like the back of a bowl or mug, flatten the fried plantains.
Add the flattened plantain back into the oil and cook an additional 1-2 minutes per side or until plantains are a beautiful golden color and edges have become slightly crisp.
Repeat with remaining chopped plantains.
Allow double fried plantains to drain in a bowl with paper towels.
Generously salt plantains while they are still hot.
