Fried Plantains
Note: Ripe plantains have peels that are almost completely black. However, the firm, ripe ones called for in this recipe are black and yellow.

•4 firm-ripe plantains
•Vegetable oil for frying
1.With a small, sharp knife, cut ends from each plantain. Slice through the peel and remove it.
2.Cut the fruit into very thin slices, about ⅛-inch thick.
3.In a large, deep skillet, heat oil (about ¼-inch deep) and fry 12 to 15 plantain slices at a time for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden, turning them over once.
4.Use a slotted spoon or spatula to remove cooked slices and place them on paper towels to drain. Season the slices with salt. Plantain slices should be slightly crisp on outside but soft on inside.
5.The slices are best served immediately; however, they may be made 1 day ahead, cooled completely, and kept in an airtight container.
6.Reheat plantain slices on a rack in a shallow baking pan in a preheated 350°F oven for 5 minutes, or until heated through.
Serves 8.
