Plantains Panama Style


Panamanian Styled Plantains

Plantains: green plantains, oil, water, garlic

 Heat oil, cut plantains into half and then into thirds (or cut then into coin size slices

about 1 inch thick), soak in water and garlic, fry then in oil for about 4 to 5 minutes or they have a hard outside, remove and drain

Smash plantains into flattened pieces about ¼ to ½ inch thick, fry again in hot oil until brown and crispy, remove and drain

Salsa: onion, garlic, cilantro, apple, chilies (to taste), tomato sauce, hotdogs, oil, water

Heat oil, add hotdogs, onion, garlic, chilies to brown, add tomato sauce and water then simmer, add chopped apple, cilantro, salt and pepper (if sauce is too thin then add dried bread pieces to thicken sauce)

Rice: oil, garlic, water, salt, pepper, cilantro, rice 

Heat oil, add garlic, cilantro, salt, pepper and rice, stir until oil is absorbed, add water, and bring to boil, cover and simmer until rice is tender

Serve hot
