What are plantains? A form of a banana, but not quite! Plantains need to be cooked prior to eating. They are staple household snack for the latino families around the world (including mine!)
Cut up plantains, they should resemble a silver dollar in shape and size.
Place a stove top sauce pan on medium heat with at least two - three inches of olive oil.
Once the olive oil is hot, place the plantains into the oil, cook each silver dollar for 3 minutes, until golden brown.
Make sure to keep on eye on these, they cook very fast and are easy to burn! Once golden brown, place on some paper towels to drain the excess amount of olive oil.
season with salt & enjoy!
