DELICIOUS DISH – PLANTAINS AS EASY AS 1, 2, 3 

(Sarah via Food Network)

A homemade alternative to bagged tortilla or pita chips.  I served them in Dallas instead of a typical “carb” side dish with dinner.  They were a hit with pineapple salsa.

Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil , for frying
  • 2 green plantains, peeled
  • 2 limes, zested and juiced
  • Salt

Directions

Preheat 1-inch of oil in a deep sided skillet over medium-high heat to 360 degrees F.

Using a mandoline or sharp knife, slice plantains into 1/8-inch thick ovals on the diagonal. Carefully add plantains to the oil in batches and fry until a tap with a metal spoon sounds hollow, about 1 minute. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle lightly with lime zest, lime juice and salt. Transfer to a serving plate and serve.
