Long strips plantain and peppered baby snails

To make long strip plantain, cut ripe plantain length wise, depending on how thick the plantain is you can get between 3 – 5 strips. Deep fry till golden brown, place on a paper towel to absorb the excess oil. Just lay the plantain from end to end to make like a ribbon.
