For the plantains, just get ones that are starting to turn black. Peel the plantains and bias cut them. Fry them in about 1/4" of oil over medium high heat. Fry for five minutes on each side, drain on a wire rack over a baking sheet. You can keep the maduros in a warm oven while you finish them up. Miss F adored the fried plantains, I think they are going to be a favorite.
1 large bunch of fresh flat leaf parsley
8 cloves of garlic, peeled
3 tablespoons minced onion
5 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
5 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 to 1 teaspoon hot pepper flakes to taste
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
Chop up the parsley a bit. This will make processing easier. Add parsley and garlic to food processor and hit the pulse button a few times to mince. Add remaining ingredients and pulse some more. Stir in the oil.
If you like the fresh crisp flavor of parsley, use immediately. Letting it rest overnight will balance out the flavors.
