Fried plantains are a traditional treat in many parts of the world. Try them once and you'll be hooked. Overly ripe plantains work best for this recipe.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 quart oil for frying
- 2 plantains
Preheat oil in a large, deep skillet over medium high heat.
Peel the plantains and cut them in half. Slice the halves lengthwise into thin pieces.
Fry the pieces until browned and tender. Drain excess oil on paper towels.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
