Fried Green Plantains with Mayo-Ketchup Dipping Sauce. They are great as a side dish or appetizer. After you smash them, but before you fry them the second time, you can put them in a resealable plastic bag and freeze them for later.
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
    1/2 cup ketchup
    1 large clove garlic, pressed
    3 cups canola oil for frying
    2 green plantains, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
    1 pinch garlic salt
  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Fry plantain chunks until golden but not browned, 5 to 7 minutes. 
  3. Drain on a plate lined with paper towels. 
  4. Allow the plantains to cool slightly, then smash each piece of plantain in a tostonero or with the bottom of a clean can. 
  5. Fry the flattened plantains a second time until golden and crisp, 5 to 7 minutes more. 
  6. Season with garlic salt.
