by: Maria Josefa Lluria de O'Higgins, “ A Taste of Old Cuba”


  • 3 large, very ripe (black) plantains
  • Vegetable oil


  1. Peel the plantains as you would bananas, and slice each one on the diagonal into 1/2 inch slices.
  2. Pour about 1 inch of oil into a large skillet and heat it over medium-high heat. you must keep it hot or else the platanos will absorb too much oil.
  3. Fry the plantain slices till they are almost lack but not burned.
  4. Drain them on paper towels. Serve immediately, or keep warm in warm oven till serving time. Can sprinkle with a little salt.
