Ingredients:

  • 4 ripe plantains, peeled, cut in half crosswise, then lengthwise
  • Oil for frying

Directions:

  1. Heat about 1/2-inch of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the plantains, a few pieces at a time, and saute until golden browned. Turn and saute the other side.
  2. Remove to a paper towel lined plate and repeat with the rest of the plantains. Sprinkle with a little salt serve hot.

Variations:

  • The plantain can be sliced in round circles.
  • Top the plantains with a little brown sugar.
  • Other possible garnishes are crumbled queso fresco, grated parmesan cheese, sour cream or seasoned tomato sauce.

Story:

This is a typical saturday or sunday breakfast for my dad. For a healthier version of the plantain he puts it in the toaster oven for about 30 minutes.
