Learn how to make simply fried plantains recipe with ripe plantains that become caramelized and almost candied like.
Servings: 4 servings
- 2 very ripe plantains
- Canola or vegetable oil
- Brown sugar optional
- Kosher or sea salt optional
Cut ends off of plantains and run a knife along the sides, peeling the skin off.
Slice on a diagonal about 1/2 in thick.
Heat a large skillet with oil so it completely covers the bottom of the pan. When oil is hot enough (you want to hear a sizzle when plantain goes in), place plantains a few at a time in the hot oil.
Fry on 1st side until it is golden brown and caramelized, about 4-5 minutes. Fry the other side until golden brown.
Optional: sprinkle with brown sugar or sea salt (But I find them sweet enough).
