Another quick and fun way of preparing green plantains, aranitas (little spiders) come out really crunchy and look so pretty on the plate. Remember to season them as soon as they come out of the oil. Traditionally served with mayo-ketchup (1:1 ratio blend of mayonnaise and ketchup with fresh pressed garlic or garlic powder to taste).
