Ingredients

Directions

Cut the tips off the plantains. Score the plantains lengthwise on both sides and place in a bowl. Cover with boiling water. Let sit for 10 minutes. Peel, using a small sharp knife, and slice into 1/2inch slices.

Heat the oil to rippling in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook the plantains for 10 minutes. Remove the plantain slices from the oil (reserving the oil) and place in one layer on a tea towel or several layers of absorbent paper on a counter top. Turn to remove excess oil. Using bunchedup absorbent paper or another tea towel, press down on each slice. Heat the reserved oil to 375 degrees and fry the plantains until crisp and golden. Season with garlic powder and salt.
