Ingredients

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.

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.

Yield: 3 to 5 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ease of preparation: easy

Cook's Note

Check the doneness with a toothpick. The middle of the plantain should still feel starchy and cool.
