they ARE supposed to be cut lengthwise, the are NOT supposed to be mushy. this recipe is not Costa Rican
This was really good. I sprinkled them with sugar and cinnamon before frying and they turned out soft and sweet. I'm giving it a 4 only because my husband thought they were "OK". I will be making this again as a treat for my daughters and I.
I loved this recipe. It was awesome. The plantains tasted wonderful. I love the carmalized flavor that you get by frying them. I used two very black plantains, they worked well. Soft, sweet and salty. Thanks for sharing a recipe that I will make again. :)
Fast & omg soooo simple! I'm not sure how long I actually fried them. 3 plantains fit in my 12" skillet. I just let 'em cook until they were caramelized then I sprinled liberally with kosher salt. DIVINE! I wish we had more. 4 people got 5 pieces. Not nearly enough, lol. My plantains were BLACK, soft & wonderfully sweet. ENJOY! Thank you, chef! BTW, yours was picked out of the several similar because it was the oldest unrated one of the bunch. ;)
