DIRECTIONS

  • In 2 very large nonstick skillets, heat the oil until shimmering. Working in batches, fry the plantains in a single layer over moderate heat, approximately 7 to 8 minutes per batch, turning occasionally, until deep golden and tender. Drain the plantains on a paper towel-lined rack and, if desired, sprinkle lightly with salt. Serve warm.
  • Make ahead: The plantains can be fried early in the day and kept at room temperature. Reheat in a warm oven and sprinkle with the optional salt before serving.
