Green Plantain Chips
What You Need:
  • Vegetable oil or shortening for deep frying
  • 1 large green plantain (about 1 pound)
  • Salt

  • How To Cook:
    1. Fill a deep fryer or large, heavy saucepan with vegetable oil or shortening to a depth of 2 or 3 inches and heat to a temperature of 375░F on a deep-frying thermometer.

    2. With a small, sharp knife, trim off the ends of the plantain and cut it in half crosswise. Cut four evenly spaced slits lengthwise in each half.

    3. With your fingers pull the skin away from the white banana like fruit inside and pull or cut off the fibrous strings. Slice the plantain crosswise into paper-thin rounds.

    4. Deep-fry the plantain slices, a dozen or so at a time, for 3 or 4 minutes, turning them with a slotted spoon until they are golden brown on both sides.

    5. As they brown, transfer them to paper towels to drain. Sprinkle with salt and serve the chips warm or at room temperature.

    To Make: about 2 cups
