Fried Plantains

This fried plantains recipe taste best when the plantains are almost black in color. The sweetness of the plantain, along with the sweet butter creates a taste that is very decadent and delicious.

4 extra ripe plantains

4 tablespoons of unsalted butter

Kosher or sea salt to taste

Peel the plantains and cut them on the diagonal in about 1-inch slices. Set aside.

In a heavy cast iron or large skillet melt the butter on medium heat. Add the sliced plantains and fry until golden brown on each side for about four minutes.

Remove the plantains from the pan and place on a paper plate lined with paper towels. Sprinkle with salt. Serve immediately.
