Fried plantains

This is an easy recipe to make. I like to prepare it on Sundays with my veggie burger. Sit and watch a classic movie like “Rebecca” by Alfred Hitchcock. For me it is one of the best  moment of the week.


1 -Olive oil
2- Ripe plantains, peeled and cut diagonally into 1 inch slices
3- Salt


1-In a large skillet,  put  the olive oil over medium heat; add the plantain slices and fry for about 4 minutes on each side, moving the slices with a spatula occasionally to prevent sticking.

2-Remove the plantains from the skillet with a slotted spoon and let drain on paper towels.

3-Transfer to a large, warm serving platter, sprinkle with salt and serve warm.

4-*unripeplantains are green and hard, as they ripen they turn yellow and then get mottled with dark spots; Ripe plantains are sweet and soft and are brownish-black in color and resemble overripe bananas; To ripen a plantain, keep them in a warm place until they turn yellow, then brownish-black.

My  tips:

I usually accompany my veggie burger with fried bananas. It is a healthy and delicious dish.
