Elaboración paso a paso
 

  • Preparation
  • Heat vegetable oil in skillet over medium heat.
  • Fully peel plantains, and cut them diagonally into approximately 1-inch wide pieces, working your way down the length of the plantain. (NOT length-wise slices).
  • Carefully place pieces of plantain in skillet.
  • Flipping often, fry plantains until golden brown. The plantains will be rather mushy - they're supposed to be.
  • They will be sweet - the riper the plantains, the sweeter they will be. If you prefer them sweeter, you can sprinkle with sugar before cooking.
