RECIPES

SWEET FRIED PLANTAINS

SWEET FRIED PLANTAINS

2-3 very ripe plantains peeled and sliced

1/4 cup cold butter divided into 4 cubes

PREP TIME: 5 min COOK TIME: 10 min TOTAL TIME: 15 min

◈ Heat a large skillet over medium heat, then add 1 cube of cold butter.

◈ When the butter starts to melt add the plantains – be sure to not crowd the pan.

◈ Add another cube of butter, and let the plantains fry in the butter for about 3

minutes, or until they are golden.

◈ When the plantains are golden, flip them using a pair of tongs so they can fry

on the other side and add another cube of cold butter and fry.

◈ Add the last bit of butter and let the plantains fry until they are golden and

nicely caramelized.

◈ When the plantains are golden, remove them from the pan using a pair of

tongs, and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to cool.

Serve and Enjoy!

TIP: To make fried sweet plantains, the plantains need to be very ripe, meaning

mostly black like in the image below. If they are still green, or just yellow, the

plantains will not be sweet after you fry them. You’ll need to wait for the

green/yellow plantains to ripen, or turn black, sitting on your counter several days

before you can make sweet plantains.

UPDATE

Like the entire hospitality industry, A Cut Above suffered significantly as a result of COVID –

19, with a loss of $750,000. in booked events, not to mention an 85% decrease in projected

revenue for the rest of 2020. But, true to form, Chef Amy has risen to the occasion, leading

the cause to Feed the Frontliners with Carmel Cares at local hospitals and health care

facilities, while assisting other local small businesses through the pandemic and guiding

numerous brave couples who are still moving forward with plans for their wedding day! This

past week, thanks to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) offered by the CARES Act and

through the leadership of Governor Holcomb’s Back on Track Indiana Plan, A Cut Above

was able to bring back its entire staff who had been furloughed in order to begin the process

of rebuilding. Fully compliant with all COVID-19 recommendations, A Cut Above is

optimistic about leading the way to a “new normal”.
