Fried Plantain


Fried Plantain

My parents are Jamaican so I grew up on this stuff. I've you've never had it you need to try it.


*If you're never seen plantain before it looks really similar to a banana. You'll know it's ripe when it looks like a rotten banana haha. You don't want to cook it until it's covered in black spots and feels soft.



What I used:

  • Plantain

  • Oil

  • Salt

  • Black Pepper

What I did:

  1. Peel the plantain

  2. Cut it into little circles

  3. Drop the plantain in oil

  4. Turn them over once they get all golden and luscious

  5. Remove from heat

  6. Top with salt & pepper


What you can do differently:

  • Cut the plantain into strips instead of circles

  • Don't use black pepper (I feel like most people don't but I really like it so...)
