Fried Plantains

Green plantains
Vegetable oil for frying
Salt and pepper
Hot sauce (recipe below)

Peel the plantain and cut off both ends. Thinly slice the plantain into
1/4 - 1/2 inch rounds. In a large, heavy skillet, heat the vegetable oil
over medium heat keeping a close watch on it. Once the oil sizzles when a
slice of plantain is added, add several plantain slices and brown them for
about 2 minutes on each side. Transfer them to towels to drain the excess
oil. On a cutting board, use a rolling pin to flatten each slice into a
flat round. Add the flattened rounds into the oil once again and brown on
each side for a minute more on each side. Drain again on the towels, add
salt and pepper and serve at once.

Hot Sauce

1 small hot pepper, finely diced
1 large chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green onions
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Pour the lemon juice over the onions and let marinate for about 2 hours.
Place all ingredients in a
pot, bring to a boil and cook until the pepper is soft (about 10-15
minutes). Let the mixture cool and
refrigerate to store.
