I absolutely looooooooove fried plantains!!!!!
These do not need an official recipe.
The longest/hardest part of this recipe is waiting for the Plantains to ripen.
If you're making this for a snack use one large overly ripe Plantain; if you're making these for a crowd use 3 to 4 overly ripe Plantains.
Peel (you have to cut them, these are NOT bananas) Plantains.
Cut Plantains on the diagonal/bias.
You do not need a ton of oil for this "recipe"
I usually coat the pan with olive oil and put a nice big spoonful of Smart Balance and saute' the Plantains.
Because of the natural sugar they tend to stick. :-(
They're done when it's crispy around the edges and soft.
Place on a paper towel to absorb the extra oil.
Sprinkle kosher salt on them and ENJOY!!!!
Optional: drizzle honey over the Plantains and then sprinkle kosher salt on top.
