Little Spiders (Fried Shredded Plantains)
By Jacinda Santiago givingrief
These are known as Arañitas in Puerto Rican cuisine, which translates to "little spiders". This is a delicious fried snack that my kids love. I like to serve them with a mayonnaise and ketchup dip. Plantains offer a nice break from traditional fried potatoes.
Plantains are showing up in more and more supermarkets. There are two types of plantains - green plantains resemble a large green banana, with a thick skin, and are a starchy vegetable rather than a fruit. Yellow and black plantains are the sweet varieties with the more black on the skin, the sweeter the plantain.
