Prep time: 10 min Cook time: 10 min Serves: 4
4 tsp. canola oil
2 green plantains, peeled and cut on the diagonal into 1/2 inch slices
1 garlic clove
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1.) Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the plantains and cook until tender and golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Remove and spread out between several layers of paper towels. With the bottom of a heavy plate or skillet, gently press down on the slices, one at a time, to flatten them to half their thickness. Rub them gently with the garlic.
2.) Spray the skillet with olive oil nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the pressed slices and cook until heated through, 1-1 1/2 minutes per side. Sprinkle with the salt.
