  • 2 plantains
  • Salt to taste
  • 6 tbsp of oil for frying or more depending on the size of your pan


  • Peel the plantains and cut into slices.
  • Sprinkle some salt on both sides.
  • Put enough oil in frying pan so that the oil comes up to about a 3rd of each slice of plantain when they are in.
  • Heat the oil until when you put a piece of plantain in, it sizzles.
  • Put in the plantain slices.
  • Fry on one side till golden and turn over and fry on the other side.
  • The second side cooks a lot quicker than the first side so keep an eye on this.
  • You might need to reduce the heat on the plantains as well after turning the slices.
  • Remove plantains from oil and drain on kitchen paper.
  • If frying plantains in more than one batch keep the first batch in an oven on warm.
  • Serve immediately.
