Plantain and Sweet Potato Chips

September 4, 2015

Fried Food

Sweet and salty fried foods are not the healthiest things you could eat when you are trying to ensure that your face stays spot free, but they are good for when you have company.  In Barbados while I had meetings or hosting friends I made these quick chips.  I didn’t need to spend the earth and fried foods are always a hit with people.

This was taken from The Caribbean Central & South American Cookbook (Anness Publishing Limited, 2010).


2 green plantains, 1 small sweet potato, oil for deep – frying.


  1. Peel the plantains and sweet potato then slice into fine slices and place into a cold bowl of salted water.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan.
  3. Remove the vegetables from the salted water, pat dry on the kitchen paper.
  4. Fry the plantain and sweet potato in batches until crisp.
  5. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a kitchen paper.
  6. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve when cold.
