Sweet fried plantains make a delicious breakfast, starter or side dish.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
- 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.
