Ingredients

4 cups vegetable oil

4 ripe plantains, peeled and cut on the bias into 1/2-inch thick slices

Salt

Finely chopped cilantro, optional

Directions

  1. Heat oil to 365 degrees F in a heavy medium saucepan. Carefully add the plantains, in batches as necessary, and fry until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Immediately sprinkle with salt and cilantro, if desired.
