How to Make It
Peel plantains and cut each into 4 or 5 pieces on a diagonal.
Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat until rippling, about 5 minutes. Add plantains and cook, turning as needed, until deep golden brown and softened but not squishy when squeezed with tongs, about 15 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with salt if you like.
