FRIED SWEET PLANTAINS (PLANTANOS MADUROS)
- 4 ripe, black plantains
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- Lime wedges
Peel the plantains and cut them in 1/2 on a bias, then slice in 1/2 lengthwise so you have 4 pieces.
Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Fry the plantains until golden on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Remove to a plate lined with paper towels and sprinkle with salt. Serve with lime wedges.
