Cooking Directions:

Fried Plantains - By happystove.com

Peel, cut in halves and slice the plantains lengthwise.

In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil. When hot, add the plantains and fry until tender and golden-brown colored.

Drain the excess of oil with some paper towels. Serve warm.


Over ripe plantains are preferred since they caramelize while cooking giving a sweeter result.

Green plantains are perfect as side dish. Just sprinkle them with salt before serving.

Best results are obtained using coconut oil or a lightly flavored vegetable oil for cooking.
