kb0426 Posted November 11, 2012 Share Posted November 11, 2012 Several years ago I traveled to Miami for work. When I was there, I had the most delicious plantains. I made an attempt to create them at home and IT WORKED! Peel and slice the plantain. I sliced it the length of the plantain, not in little circles. I sliced as thin as I could, but they were probably still about 1/8th of an inch wide. Heat coconut oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. I used enough to just fill the bottom of the pan. Place the plantain strips in the pan. Do not leave unattended. I have had epic plantain failures in the past by thinking you can walk away. Once these bad boys start to caramelize they go from great to burnt quickly. Keep cooking and flipping until they are a nice deep brown - but not burnt . Remove to a plate lined with paper towels. The beauty of the ones I had in Miami was the garlic and butter on them. So, I put a tbl of ghee in a small saucepan and added a teaspoon of minced garlic once the ghee had melted. Swirl the garlic around in the ghee. I poured the garlic ghee over the plantains - yes, while they were still on the paper towel. I didn't want a pool of ghee on them, just a nice coating. I know; it makes sense in my head, but probably not here! Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and eat hot. Delicious! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
