Directions

Ingredients

  • Cooking oil for frying
  • 3 plantains
  • Caribbean Trading Company Sauces and Seasonings

Preheat oil to 350 degrees F

Step One: Cut and Fry

Cut plantains down the middle; peel away skin and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces.

Add plantains to the hot oil and fry until golden; about 2 to 3 minutes. Do not overcook as you want the center to still be raw.

Step Two: Squash and Fry

Put the fried plantain through the old fashioned smasher. This will squash the plantain for more thorough cooking.

Place the squashed plantain back into the pan and fry again until golden brown and fully firm, about 2 to 3 minutes. Drain on a paper towel lined tray or plate.

Step Three: Season and Serve

Traditionally tostones are seasoned with salt; however, for a nice twist, garnish with Caribbean Trading Company spices and/or sauces.
