Plátanos maduros fritos is one of our most popular Dominican foods, and possibly our favorite side dish so if you don't need a recipe, fantastic! If you need a recipe, we have your back!

– 2 plantain (ripe, yellow) – ½ cup oil for frying


Step 1:

Peel the plantains (how to peel a plantain) with a paring knife and cut diagonally into ¼" inch (0.5 cm) slices.

Step 2:

Heat the oil over medium heat (450 ºF [225 ºC]). Deep fry the plantains in small batches, lowering them into the oil with a slotted spoon. Turn halfway until both sides are golden brown.

Step 3:

Remove from the oil and place on a paper towel to absorb the excess oil. Serve hot or at room temperature.
