The Fry Plantain
4 large, very ripe plantains
1½ cups vegetable oil or oil of your choice
1 Tostonera (Plantain Press)
1 teaspoon(s) Garlic Powder
Trim ends of plantains, peel, and cut diagonally or your way
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Carefully place 1 plantain piece in oil. If it bubbles vigorously, the oil is ready. If it doesn’t, wait another minute, and try again. Working in batches, cook plantains, turning once, until beginning to brown, 1–2 minutes per side. Reduce heat to low and continue to cook, turning occasionally, until soft and deep golden brown, 6–8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined sheet tray. Flatten the plantains using a plantain press. In a small bowl add about 1 cup water, 1 teaspoon(s) Garlic Powder and 1 tablespoon(s) Kosher Salt stir until the salt dissolved and dip pressed plantains into water, shake off excess and re-fry. Serve hot with Sole Meuniere!
