Fried Plantains

Growing up in South Florida, I enjoyed authentic Cuban food on a regular basis.  A few years after moving away, I realized that I hadn’t had a good Cuban meal in ages.  So, I began trying to reproduce the fare myself. Plantains were my first attempt because they were my favorite part of my Cuban meals.

  • 2 very ripe plantains, (black and soft), peeled
  • Oil or butter for frying (I’ve used both coconut oil and butter.  We like the butter batches best!)
  • Salt to taste

Cut the plantains into poker-sized chips and fry up in the hot oil.  It’ll take about 3 minutes per side.  Just pull them out when they’re nice and brown.  Season with salt and enjoy!
