1/1 Photo of Fried Sweet Plantains (platanos maduros fritos)
Hey Jude's Note:
This is a terrific Cuban side dish or, as we have them, just a snack. You can serve these with rice and beans and entrees of meat or fish. Plantains are becoming more available in grocery stores and they're really tasty!

- 1In a large skillet, melt the butter with the olive oil over medium heat; add the plantain slices and fry for about 4 minutes on each side, moving the slices with a spatula occasionally to prevent sticking.
- 2Remove the plantains from the skillet with a slotted spoon and let drain on paper towels.
- 3Transfer to a large, warm serving platter, sprinkle with lemon juice and salt and serve warm.
