I think I found this in a newspaper. It's one of the easiest recipes I have and takes only a few minutes to make. The plaintains should be somewhat soft with black spots on the skin for these to come out right.
- Combine plantains, sugar & salt. Toss well.
- Melt butter in non-stick skillet and sauté plantains over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until browned, turning to brown both sides.
A great, simple recipe for maduros - they come out just like in a restaurant. (Hint: I use ice tongs to flip them because they're slippery little suckers!) Thanks for the recipe!
I also never had a plantain before but I saw some in my store today and I was feeling daring (lol), so I picked one up. This was a very new, but good taste to me. I really enjoyed cooking with this new ingredient as well as eating it. Thanks for opening my cooking horison!
Another whole new experience for me ~ I'd never even purchased plantains before! They are rather bland, but my taste buds can accept that, & as 'dipper' into salsa or chocolate fudge or sour cream [what can I say, I enjoy exploring!] they are a great addition to my finger foods buffet! Perhaps my fruit wasn't as ripe as it should have been, but I thought the sugar was needed! Thanks for sharing!
