  • 2 plantains large
  • Olive Oil for deep frying
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste


  • Cut off both ends of the plantain then run your knife through the flesh of the plantain creating a cut from the top to the bottom - Try not to cut too deep into the flesh, you just want to cut through the skin.
  • Using a mandoline slicer, slice plantains into long, thin stripes. If the plantain is too long, divide it into two before slicing it.
  • Put the cut plantain in a large bowl, and season with salt and black pepper.
  • Preheat some Oil sufficient enough to deep fry the plantains. Add the plantains and fry them stirring continuously until they become golden and crispy.
