Amarillos (Sautéed Yellow Plantains) are ripe plantain slices that are cooked until tender, sweet and crispy around the edges. The yellow plantain slices are sautéed instead of fried for a healthier version of our Amarillos.
- 1 large yellow plantains, peeled and cut into ½-inch diagonal slices
- 3 tablespoons of margarine made with extra virgin olive oil
- In a 10-inch skillet, melt the margarine over medium heat.
- Place the plantain slices into skillet and sauté until golden brown on one side.
- Turn over the plantains to brown on the other side. If you want them to have a darker color, then continue cooking the plantain slices.
- Remove from skillet and serve warm on a plate.
The brand for the margarine that I use is Smart Balance. However, you choose the brand of your preference.
One yellow plantain will yield 7 to 8 slices, depending on the size of the plantain.
