Fried plantain is a favorite snack of mine. They look very similar to a banana but are much more savory and cannot be eaten raw. You can bake them, but I really enjoy them fried. Fried Plantain has an amazing texture-crunchy one the outside and chewy on the inside, kind of like a cookie! I like to fry them in coconut oil for health and taste. I also like to top them with sea salt and red chili peppers.
