  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.

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.

These are a great breakfast instead of fried potatoes. I made 1/2 of a plantain following this recipe, and the other 1/2 without the salt but sprinkling with sugar before removing from the pan (to see which recipe I liked better). I actually really liked both. This one is better as a breakfast or side dish in place of potatoes or rice. The other would make a great dessert or sweet snack. Great either way!
