Who doesn't love fried plantain? We sure do, especially the little person in the house. We like to eat them with real Vermont maple syrup. It's a good (and quick and easy) substitution for pancakes. And it seems we can eat endless amounts of these little golden gems.
- 1 ripe plantain per person
- Canola or olive oil for frying
- Maple Syrup for sopping
- Peel and slice plantains into 1/4 in slices.
- Heat a cast iron skillet over med-low heat. When hot, add enough oil to coat the bottom of skillet.
- Carefully add plantain slices to skillet so oil does not splatter up at you. Fry one side for 2-3 minutes until golden brown and flip over to fry for another 2 minutes.
- Transfer to paper towel lined plate to drain and cool.
- Serve warm with maple syrup. Enjoy!
