Tostones: Cuban Fried Plantains!
I make these fried delights in the Cuban style, but the formula is similar throughout the Caribbean.
Warning: you will be twice frying a starchy vegetable, then salting it. It isn’t health food.
- cooking oil [I use olive and canola oil for taste, but use what you prefer]
When the fried slices are cool enough to handle they must be mashed flat.
Place the mashed slices in your oil and fry, taking care to avoid burning [or setting off smoke alarms]. When the mashed slices are crispy remove them from heat, drain on paper towels, and salt to taste.
Best served warm.
