DIRECTIONS

  • Combine water, garlic, and salt in a medium size bowl and set aside.
  • In a large saute pan, heat oil to 325°F.
  • Peel plantains and slice into 1-inch pieces. Carefully add plantains to oil and fry until golden yellow in color, about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes per side.
  • With a slotted spoon, remove the plantains from the pan and place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. With the back of a wide, wooden spatula or spoon, press each piece of plantain down to half its original size.
  • Place the plantains in the garlic water and let soak for 1 minute. Remove and pat dry with a tea towel to remove excess water.
  • Bring oil back up to 325°F and return plantains to pan and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 4 minutes per side.
  • Remove to dish lined with paper towels and sprinkle with salt. Serve immediately.
