3 green plantains
juice of 3 limes
vegetable oil for frying
To peel the plantains, slice the ends off and cut each plantain in two. Deeply score the skin with a knife cutting right through to the flesh down the length of the plantains. Slide your fingertip under the skin and peel it away horizontally rather than lengthways. Now slice the plantains diagonally very thinly. Soak the slices in lime juice for 10-15 minutes. Dry thoroughly. Heat the oil in a frying pan and when hot fry the plantain chips until crisp and golden brown.
Plantain chips may be eaten as a snack or served with a vegetable dip as an unusual first course.
