15 min Cook Time
3 cups canola oil for frying
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 green plantains, peeled and cut into slices
3 cloves garlic, or to taste
1/8 cup crushed fried pork skins

1. Heat canola oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees. Mash the garlic with the olive oil in a mortar and pestle. Combine garlic mixture with the pork rinds in a large bowl; set aside.
2. Fry the plantain chunks until golden and crispy, but not brown, about 15 minutes. Transfer the fried plantains into the bowl with the garlic mixture. Toss to coat.
