• approximately 2 cups of canola oil (enough to reach 1/2-inch in large cast iron skillet)
  • 2 plantains, peeled and sliced into 1-inch pieces
  • sea salt


Heat oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high until a drop of water sputters. Place plantains into the oil and cook until lightly golden on both sides (approximately a minute on each side). Remove slices from skillet and drain on paper towels. Place each slice between two pieces of waxed paper and flatten. Return flattened slices into skillet and continue frying for another 30 seconds on each side. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with sea salt to taste.
