  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Drizzle about 1 teaspoon oil onto a clean work surface and the bottom of a coffee cup.

  • Fry the plantains in the hot oil until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from fryer and place on the work surface; flatten with the bottom of the coffee cup. Re-fry until browned and tender, about 5 minutes. Place on a paper towel-covered plate; sprinkle with salt. Serve plantains alongside the dip.

Editor's Note:

How can you go wrong with fried plantains and avocado? Easily a five star recipe. I couldn't quite see the need to oil a work surface and use a coffee cup to flatten them out so I folded a piece of parchment paper placed the plantains in between and flattened them with the smooth side of a meat tenderizer. The only change I made was to use garlic salt in place of the garlic and salt. Read More
