Step 1 : Gather all your ingredients. Start by peeling and cut each plantain in a diagonally or round, into a 1/4-inch-thick slices. Then place them in a bowl or tray. [Note you can add salt before the frying begin or after the frying].

Step 2 : Drizzle enough (eyeball it) oil into a non-sticky skillet to coat the bottom of the pan and place it on medium heat.

Step 3: As soon as the the oil begins to shimmer, NOT smokey, start adding your plantains (I usually do them in batches). [Frying time should be 1 1/2 – 2 minutes on one side, flip and cook for 1-2 minute on the other side. They burn quickly so you need to monitor them as soon as you add them to the frying oil].

Step 4 : Monitor each plantain and start removing plantains from pan and place them in a sieve to drain the oil.

Step 5: Once all your batches are done, sprinkle little sea salt to give a sweet and salty taste to your fried ripe plantains. [Note you can add salt before the frying begin or after the frying].

Step 6 : Your plantains are ready to be served- Bon Appetit!
