Hot plantain crisps

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 \N Plantains -- firm
4 teaspoons Lemon juice
4 teaspoons Ground ginger
4 teaspoons Cayenne pepper
\N \N Vegetable oil -- for frying

Slice the plantains into rounds ½-inch thick, and sprinkle lemon juice over the pieces, stirring to moisten. In a separate bowl, combine the ginger and pepper. Heat about ¼ inch of oil in a heavy skillet until a test piece of plantain sputters. Roll plantain pieces a few at a time in the spice mixture to coat surfaces, then transfer to the skillet. Fry until outsides are crisp and golden. With a slotted spoon, remove plaintains to an absorbent cloth [or paper toweling] for cooling [slightly]. Serve hot.
