Fried Plantain Chips


3 green plantains
1 cup water, heavily salted
Vegetable oil for frying


Heat vegetable oil in a heavy skillet. Use a vegetable peeler to peel the plantains, then slice on a diagonal into about 1-inch-thick pieces. Fry until lightly golden. Immediately remove from the oil and place in a paper bag. Gently press with a rolling pin until the plantains are approximately 1/2-inch-thick. Quickly dip plaintain chips in salted water, then fry again until brown and crispy. Serve immediately.
