Default Nuclear Tostones

This recipe was featured yesterday on Martha Stewart's show by Gloria Estefan. They looked so good!

Nuclear Tostones

SERVES 4 TO 6



2 green plantains

1/2 cup vegetable oil, for frying

Coarse salt

Mojo, for serving

1. On a work surface, cut both ends off plantains; score skin lengthwise in 3 places on each plantain. Wrap in paper towels, and microwave on high until tender, about 7 minutes. To test for doneness, insert the tip of a paring knife. Let cool slightly.

2. Cut each plantain crosswise into 1-inch pieces; peel and discard skins. Place plantains cut-side up between two sheets of parchment paper. Using the bottom of a bowl, press down to flatten into a disc. Repeat with remaining plaintains.

3. Heat 2-inches of oil in a large saucepan over medium-high until it registers 350 on a deep-fry thermometer. Add plantains in batches, being careful not to over crowd. Fry until golden brown and crispy, about 1 minute. Transfer to a paper towel-lined baking sheet; season immediately with salt. Serve immediately with mojo.



MOJO:

Mojo

SERVES 4 TO 6



1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup white vinegar

2 tablespoons minced garlic

Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

1. In a small bowl, combine oil, vinegar, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper.

That sounds like something good to try with my bananas that won't mature before frost! Thanks for sharing, Anna.
