How to Make Pantacones
- Add sufficient oil to cover the bottom of a frying pan.
Heat the oil on high heat; then lower the temperature to medium and add the plantain pieces.
- Fry on both sides for three minutes per side. Watch carefully so they don't burn.
Scoop them out and put aside to cool and drain on a wire rack.
When cooled, using a small glass, gently crush the plantains, and re-fry them to your desired crispness.
Place them back on the rack and salt to taste.
They are ready to eat now...
You can enjoy them as a snack or serve them as a side.
Personally I love them with rice and peas or mixed into scrambled eggs with fried onions.
