Twice Fried Plantains


Plantains. I’m told the blacker, the sweeter, which makes sense.

Oil for frying

Salt (optional)


Peel plantain and slice in 1 to 2 inch sections.

Fry in 1″ of oil over medium to high heat for 3 to 4 minutes each side.  Remove from oil and drain on absorbent paper until they are cool enough to handle.

Mash plantain sections into patties.

Refry in the hot oil for another 3 minutes or so per side or until they are as golden brown as you like.  Drain on paper and serve hot. Salt them at this time if you like.  For a delicious appetizer, or as an accompaniment to Thai food, dip them in Easy Thai Peanut Sauce.
