Twice Fried Plantains


  1. 1/4 cup cooking oil
  2. 4 green plantains
  3. 2 teaspoon salt
  4. 4 cloves garlic
  5. 4 Lime Wedges 


  1. In a large, deep frying pan, heat the oil over moderately high heat. Skin and chop the plantains.  Fry the plantain rounds until they are golden brown.  Remove browned plantains from heat.
  2. Smash the fried plantains and garlic together in a bowl.  If the mixture is too dry, add some oil.
  3. Form the plantain/garlic mixture into patties and fry again.  Remove from heat when the patties are caramelized on both sides.  Serve with lime wedges (or hot sauce!).
