Platanos Fritos Plátanos fritos are popular in many countries around the world and specially in El Salvador.
- Ripe plantains, peeled, cut in half crosswise, then lengthwise
- Oil of your choice, i would choose olive oil or corn.
- Heat about 1/2-inch of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the plantains, a few pieces at a time, and sauté until lightly browned. Turn and sauté the second side.
- Remove to a paper towel-lined plate and repeat with the rest of the plantains. Sprinkle with a little sugar serve hot.
we eat it with beans and 'mantequilla' or white cream. we fry a whole plantain with a small and slight cut in the middle.
when't it's a golden color, we take it out and pour out the excess of oil.
(We have lots of oil in our food...maybe not so good for our figure.)
Then, we add fried beans, 'frijolitos fritos' and a bit of mantequilla-(sour creme). Some may change the mantequilla for cheese
