Ever find yourself with an extra plantain? Here’s a simple,quick and delicious way of serving them as an entree for an informal gather up, or just a snack to much on while watching a movie.
The other day manfriend harvested plantains and I wanted to eat them differently so I went with platanutres. Which is just another way of eating fried plantains because Puerto Ricans will never get tired of throwing those things in oil. Never. With a green plantain:
- Peel the plantain.
- Cut in very thin slices. Take your time. Make them pretty!
- Soak them in enough water to cover them and add a couple of teaspoons of salt for a few minutes.
- Carefully fry them in very hot oil (hot HOT!) for a few minutes (something like fifteen minutes will do I think. I leave mine until very golden, almost brown.)
- Serve them in a plate with a napkin to absorb excess oil.
YUM. I ate two plates of that by myself. TWO.
Hope you enjoy it if you try it! 🙂
Have a great day!
