Fried Plantains

  • Active Time 44m

Serves 4


  • 2 cups canola oil
  • 4 ripe black-skinned plantains, peeled, cut diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick pieces


Heat the oil in a heavy large saucepan or deep fryer to 250 degrees F. Working in batches, fry the plantains until golden brown, turning often, about 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fried plantains to paper towels to drain.


  • Facilitate peeling the plantains by first scoring the skin lengthwise with a knife. Then use your hands to peel back the skin.
