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

  2. Heat your IMUSA skillet and add about an inch of oil.
  3. Cut the plantains into 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 PTFE Nonstick 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!
