Plantain entree

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.
  • plaintains soaking
  • 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.)
  • frying plantains
  • Serve them in a plate with a napkin to absorb excess oil.
  • done plantain


YUM.  I ate two plates of that by myself.  TWO.

Hope you enjoy it if you try it!  🙂

Have a great day!
