This is a really delicious way to cook plantains. I had a friend whose mother was from Panama and this is how she was taught to make them, too. I usually prefer very ripe plantains but my husband brought home a bunch of green ones so I'm glad I found your recipe.
Mmmmm I love plantains but have never made them this way before. They were so good. Kind of tasted like french fries with the ketchup on it. They were so very crisp yet tender on the inside. I can't believe how quick and easy it was to make these, they were the perfect accompaniment to my poached eggs this morning. Thanks for sharing your recipe, which I will make again, a nice change from the battered ones that I usually make. Made for Fall PAC 2012
THis is how i grew up in Panama eating them. Every place served them, and I learned from our housekeeper how to make them like this. We put American cheese on the top when it first comes out of the fryer, it melts right away and is sooo yummy. with lots of salt of course!! my picky 2 yr old will even eat these!
