Fried Plantains

Morsels of Life - Fried Plantains - Plantains, pan-fried with garlic and coated with a layer of crispy bread crumbs.

I wasn't sure what to do with the plantain that was left after making maduros asados, and I wanted to try something new. I found Alton Brown's recipe for fried plantains, so I thought I'd give it a try - but of course, I had to make my usual edits. :P

What's your favorite way to eat plantains?

Materials:

Mass Weight Volume Number Material Notes
oil
garlic, minced
bread crumbs
plantain(s)


Methods:

  1. Peel and cut the plantain diagonally into approximately 0.5 - 0.75 inch thick slices.
  2. Heat oil and garlic in pan. The amount of garlic used depends on your preferences. I used about 2 tablespoons of minced garlic. You could also use roasted garlic oil instead.
  3. Add plantains, making sure to cook both sides.
  4. Once plantains are finished cooking, let them sit for a few minutes on a paper towel to soak up the excess oil.
  5. Coat the plantains in bread crumbs.
  6. Serve, or for more crispy plantains, bake. They can also be pre-made and then reheated just before eating.
