ingredients  + serving


Peel and slice the plantains into pieces, or little wheels, then fry them in vegetable oil until tender and starting to brown. Then drain them on paper towels.


Next, flatten the plantains into disks. Be careful not to smash them too thin, or they can fall apart.


Then, fry the smashed plantains again in the hot oil until they turn golden brown and crispy. Drain again.


Sprinkle with sea salt and lime juice and boom! Done! Your fried tostones are ready to serve. Pretty easy, right?
