Fried Plantains


Well this is probably my new most favorite appetizer! Delicious and really easy to make. All you need are ripe plantains... that's right, they have to be pretty ripe (almost black on the outside) in order to taste good. The procedure is simple: peel, slice and fry in little bit of olive oil and season with salt (my friend RLM who inspired me to try plantains cooks them without any oil and they still taste decicious!). But just remember, that they have to be pretty ripe!

  1. Looks yummy!

    Slaninka,
    How can the plantains be cooked without oil? With water?

  2. My friend said she just puts them directly onto the hot surface of the frying pan and i guess the plantains caramelize from the heat and do not require any oil nor water.
