Haitain Fried Plantains are fried twice, with a vinegar bath in between for a uniquely Haitian flavor different from the more popular tostones.

  • 2 green plantains
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • extra salt for post frying
  • oil for frying


  • Peel and slice plantains into large pieces.
  • Heat a skillet with enough oil for deep frying. Fry the plantain slices about 2-3 minutes until they just start to turn golden.
  • Remove onto paper towels.
  • In a medium bowl, combine water, vinegar and salt.
  • Transfer the plantain slices in vinegar solution for about 1-2 minutes.
  • For the next step, you can use the flat side of a large knife like a cleaver or wrap a heavy pan (cast iron) in foil and use the bottom of the pot. You can also use a tostonera or a tortilla press.
  • Place the fried plantain slices in the tostonera and lightly press down. Alternatively, place the fried plantain slices on a chopping board and with the cleaver or the cast iron pot, press down until the fried plantain slice is flattened.
  • Fry again in the hot oil for a few minutes on both sides, until golden brown and crispy.
  • As soon as it comes out of the hot oil, give it a scant sprinkle of salt and place on paper towels to absorb excess oil.
  • Serve with every Haitian meal!



Make sure to use completely green plantains.
You can fry the plantain in the most common method, using a cast iron skillet or you can also use a deep fryer.
