This recipe was a little bland for me. Also, the plantains cooked really fast. It probably had something to do with the size that I cut them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel the plantains and cut them in 1/2 on a bias, then slice in 1/2 lengthwise so you have 4 pieces.
  2. Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat.
  3. Fry the plantains until golden on both sides, about 5 minutes per side.
  4. Remove to a plate lined with paper towels and sprinkle with salt.
  5. Serve with lime wedges.
