Fried Plantains Served with Guac
INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 45 minutes to 1 hr
  • Servings: 5
  • Preparation Time: 10-20 minutes
  • 3 big green plantains
  • 1 big Florida avocado
  • Vegetable oil
  • Water
  • Minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Adobo
  • 1/2 tsp lemon
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp matouk’s
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp tajin clasico seasoning
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup diced bell peppers (green, red , yellow and orange)
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
DIRECTIONS
  1. Use a knife to cut through the skin of plantains from top to bottom. Use your fingers to pry open & peel off the skin
  2. Cut the plantains into pieces (like to cut them diagonally so that I could have a nice flatten shape)
  3. Fill a large skillet with enough vegetables oil. Heat over medium
  4. Add the plantain slices. Fry plantains until soften (I like to let take that slight golden color)
  5. Season shrimp with adobo. Then, fry on a skillet with 1 tbs of olive oil
  6. In a bowl, combine water, minced garlic and adobo
  7. Using a plantain flattened, gently flatten each fried plantain piece(make sure they’re very flat for the guac)
  8. Deep the flattened plantain in the seasoned water, then, add back to oil and briefly fry to crisp.
  9. Drain on a paper towel and transfer to a large serving plate
  10. Add the guac on top of plantains and serve
  11. P.S: just check out my guac recipe
  12. Bon appétit!!
  13. Guacamole recipe:
  14. Cut the avocado into small to medium cubes
  15. Add the avocado cubes, onion, lemon juice, diced tomato, bell peppers, Dijon mustard and dried parsley to a large bowl. Sprinkle evenly with adobo, tajin clasico seasoning, matouk’s, salt and black pepper
  16. Using two spoons, toss the guacamole until it is evenly combined. Taste and season with extra salt and seasoning if needed.
  17. Normally, I add corn to it but didn’t have any. Taste really great with them. The corn give the guac that savory taste
