  • Dip the plantains in water, then return them to the hot oil and fry 1 minute on each side. Salt to taste and serve immediately

Notes

This is an Island staple usually as a side dish but I LOVE topping them with anything from my Tuna Tempeh, Shredded Beef,to eggplant souffle, salads & more. Try your favorite dip or topping recipe!
