Serves 6


4 medium to large plantains, sliced in 1 inch slices
1 cup canola oil


Heat half the oil in a sauté pan on medium high heat. Fry the plantains until golden brown and then turn and cook on the other side until golden brown as well. Drain on paper towels. Place on a flat surface and smash evenly entire plantain until flat like a pancake. Immediately sprinkle with salt and pepper and place back in the frying pan to finish cooking raw parts.
