Watch me make Banann Peze:
Banann Peze (Fried Plantains)Print Recipe
- 1 green plantain
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 - 1 tsp salt
Peel plantain, cut into 1-inch diagonal pieces.
Add oil to small pan on medium to high heat and fry plantains. Remove from oil, drain on paper towel and flatten using a plantain press.
In a small bowl add about 1 cup water along with salt and dip pressed plantains into water, shake off excess and re-fry.
Remove from oil and drain on a plate lined with paper towel. Serve with sòs and pikliz.
*When re-frying the green plantains you can add them into salt water before hand, this gives the salt a chance to penetrate the plantain which gives it that extra tasty taste (Yum). That step is not necessary for the sweet plantains and I wouldn't advise doing so. *If you don't have a plantain press, get creative and find something flat in the kitchen to flatten it with.
