Instead of having potato chips try plantain chips. They are delicious, easy to make and healthy. You’ll find most Belizeans eating plantain chips as snack or a side to fish.
Here’s a recipe:
- 1 1/2 tsp lime/lemon zest
- 1 lemon/lime
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 teaspoon smoke paprika
- 6 cups coconut oil (Or any cooking oil)
- 4 green plantains
Mix together lemon/lime zest, salt, and paprika in a bowl.
Peel the plantains and then slice them about 1/8 inch thick. Then soak in hot water and 1 lime/lemon juice for 5 minutes, drain and dry with paper towel. Fry in hot coconut oil until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and add salt mixture to taste.
Serve as a snack or with fish or chicken.
