Manduros – Fried Sweet Plantains
Plantains are ripe when they have blackened. This is a cousin of the banana. We didn’t have enough oil to fill the pan 1″ so we had our slices about 1/4″ thick this time.
Heat one inch of canola or vegetable oil on medium heat. Peel a ripe plantain (black) and cut slices at an angle, about 3/4″ thick. Fry on both sides until browned. Serve hot.
