Ingredients
  • 4 plantains
  • 4 tsp. lemon juice
  • 4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • oil for frying
Directions

Slice the plantains into rounds 1/4-thick, and sprinkle lemon juice over the pieces, stirring to moisten. In a separate bowl, combine the ginger and pepper. Heat about 1/4 inch of oil in a heavy skillet until a test piece of plantain sputters. Roll plantain pieces a few few at a time in the spice mixture to coat surfaces, then transfer to the skillet. Fry until outsides are crisp and golden. With a slotted spoon, remove plantain to an absorbent cloth for cooling. Serve hot.
