Cuisine: Caribbean
Author: Imusa Chef Team
Tostones, a traditional side dish made of green plantain, are also known as "Patacones". There are several ways to add variety to this delicious staple in many Latin American and Caribbean countries - we show you how with this recipe using shrimp!
Ingredients
  • Small cooked shrimp
  • Large Diced Tomato 1
  • Paprika 1 tsp
  • Small onion
  • Chopped cilantro ½ Cup
  • Lemon juice 1 Tbsp
  • Green plantains 2
  • Vegetable oil
  • Optional hot sauce*
Preparation
  1. Combine the first six ingredients, mix well to coat and refrigerate the shrimp mixture for a couple before serving or overnight!
  2. Heat your IMUSA skillet and add about an inch of oil.
  3. Cut the plantains into ½ pieces and fry them in the hot oil until lightly browned. While removing each from the oil, press down on each with a wooden or non-stick spoon to hollow out the plantain so it looks like a small cup.
  4. Put each plantain cup back in the hot oil to let it crisp up some more. Another 5 minutes.
  5. Spoon in your cooled shrimp mixture into each cup and serve!
