Thank You, Thank You, and Thanks again, Chef John for sharing this recipe with us. I grew up ( and still do!) eating these for breakfast along with fried eggs - sunny side-up...delish! Chef Wilo Bennett, owner of Pikayo Restaurant in San Juan, Puerto Rico has a video (still available!!) of "piononos" which is the most popular way to use sweet plantains in P.R. So easy to make! Thanks for sharing with the readers one of the best things we offer in Latin America: Our food!

Have made these twice now, they are so easy and good. Don't skip the limes and salt. I don't know why that makes such a big difference, but they really increase the deliciousness.

The video was very helpful. I made these using a nearly black plantain with 2T Coconut Oil in a non-stick frypan. I was using the dish for a dessert so mid-way through cooking I sprinkled on about 1T Brown Sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Near the end of cooking I lightly sprinkled with salt. The taste was good. I might fry them a little hotter next time to create a crispier exterior. Note: I would suggest not placing them on a paper towel lined plate as mine stuck to it! I am always in favor of trying to remove excess oil but will try a way other than a paper towel next time.

Yum! I love fried plantains and have ever since my dear Cuban friend introduced them to me. We served this with Cuban chicken fricasse. Thanks Chef John!
