These sweet plantains are fried to a deep golden brown and soft. Sprinkled with salt and served up with rice and beans, this delicious side dish can quickly become your dinner. If you haven’t tried making plantains before, its super simple to do! Its literally 3 simple ingredients, and two of them you may already have in your pantry.
2 yellow/black plantains, 3/4-inch thick diagonal slices (Plátanos amarillos)
1/4 cup avocado oil, for frying
Sprinkle Himalayan Pink salt
- Slice ends and 1 long slice through the skin only. Peel back and slice in 3/4-inch thick diagonal slices.
- In a skillet on medium-high heat with oil, pan fry the plantain slices for roughly 2 1/2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove and set on a towel to drain and sprinkle with salt.
- Serve warm with rice and black beans or side of choice.
Chef’s tip: For extra soft and golden brown maduros, reduce the heat to low after browning each side and cook for 6 minutes.
