Fried Plantains (Tostones)


I have never had Plantains in my life. So when my hubby made these I was a little unsure. But they are really yummy. He fries these and then you dip them in ketchup, weird I know. But they are really good and that is how they eat them in his home land (as he says it) Puerto Rico.

3 ripe plantains (ripe plantains normally have black skin and should have lots of give to them when gentle squeezed)

Oil for cooking

 Slice plantains diagonally, about 1/4 of an inch thick. Heat oil til very hot. Add plantains, but do not overfill pan. Fry until golden and then turn over and fry other side until golden. Serve immediately. (you’ll need ketchup to dip the plantains in)

  1. Thank you for sharing these wonderful recipes, I tried the chicken and rice and it was absolutely amazing! The family loved it. I’d been trying other Spanish recipes and none compared to this one. I look forward to trying the salads, it is so refreshing to try new recipes that work with my palate, being a foodie and all, your hubbie’s recipes are next in line…
