Ingredients
  • Tostones
  • Recipe courtesy Kamar de los Reyes
  • Oil, for frying
  • 3 plantains
  • Salt
Directions
  • Special equipment: "Old Fashioned Plantain Smasher"

  • Preheat oil to 350 degrees F.

  • Cut plantains down the middle; peel away skin and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces.

  • Add plantains to the hot oil and fry until golden; about 2 to 3 minutes. Do not overcook as you want the center to still be raw. Lightly salt.

  • *Cook's Note: Check the doneness with a toothpick. The middle of the plantain should still feel starchy and cool.

  • Put the fried plantain through the old fashioned smasher. This will make it a cup shape.

  • Place the "the plantain cup" into the deep-fryer and fry again until golden brown and fully firm, about 2 to 3 minutes Drain on a paper towel lined sheet tray. Season with salt.
