Banann Peze (Fried Plantains)

What is Griyo without banann peze (fried plantains)? I don’t know cause I always eat griyo with plantains, they just go together!! Now plantains on the other hand, I can just eat that with some sòs(sauce) and pikliz(spicy coleslaw). I love both green and sweet yellow plantains equally.

Print Recipe
Serves: 4 Cooking Time: 10-15 minutes


  • 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.
