Plantanitos (Tostones) with Bountiful Bahia Seasoning


  • 3 large green plantains

  • Vegetable oil for frying

  • 1 tablespoon Bountiful Bahia seasoning

  • Salt to taste

  • Lime wedges for serving (optional)


Prepare the Plantains:

  • Peel the green plantains by cutting off both ends and making a shallow slit along the length of the plantain. Use your fingers to peel off the skin.

  • Cut the plantains into 1-inch thick slices.

First Fry:

  • In a large skillet, heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil over medium heat until hot.

  • Fry the plantain slices in batches, making sure not to overcrowd the skillet. Fry for about 2-3 minutes on each side until they are golden but not fully cooked.

  • Remove the plantains from the oil and drain on paper towels.

Flatten the Plantains:

  • Using the bottom of a heavy glass, a plate, or a tostonera (a tool specifically for flattening plantains), press each plantain slice to flatten it to about 1/4-inch thickness.

Second Fry:

  • Return the flattened plantains to the hot oil and fry again for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are crispy and golden brown.

  • Remove the plantains from the oil and drain on paper towels.

Season and Serve:

  • While the plantanitos are still hot, sprinkle them generously with Bountiful Bahia seasoning and salt to taste.

  • Serve immediately with lime wedges on the side for squeezing over the plantanitos if desired.
