Heat the oil in a large skillet. Place the plantains in the oil and fry on both sides; approximately 3 minutes per side.
Remove the plantains from the pan and flatten the plantains by placing a plate over the fried plantains and pressing down.
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
