“I love plantains and I craved these all the time when I was pregnant. They are great as a side dish or appetizer. After you smash them, but before you fry them the second time, you can put them in a resealable plastic bag and freeze them for later. There's no need to defrost them but be careful when you drop them in the hot oil. You can adjust the mayonnaise to ketchup ratio to your liking and add more or less garlic.”

Directions

  1. Combine the mayonnaise, ketchup, and garlic in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Fry plantain chunks until golden but not browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Allow the plantains to cool slightly, then smash each piece of plantain in a tostonero or with the bottom of a clean can. Fry the flattened plantains a second time until golden and crisp, 5 to 7 minutes more. Season with garlic salt.

This is very popular in Puerto Rico. Goes very well with roast pork. Dipping sauce can also be made with pressed garlic and melted butter.

Just the way I remember them! Mayoketchup is the best!! Just like she said, find the balance between mayo and ketchup that will work best for you. I don't measure it, just add and test until it is right for me. I love garlic so I add lots of it. Thank you, LatinaCook!
