Ingredients
  • Plantain Chips:
  • 1 green plantain peeled and sliced crosswise into very thin slices
  • 2 cups canola oil
  • Salt
  • Spicy Scallops:
  • 1/4 pound fresh bay scallops
  • 2 limes, zested, juiced
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped fine
  • 1 habanero pepper, diced fine (for less heat use a milder pepper like poblano or jalapeno)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped cilantro, plus leaves for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon chopped red onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pimento seed or allspice berries
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
Directions
Plantain Chips:

Place oil in a deep stainless steel pot and heat to 350 degrees F. Place chips in the hot oil and fry until crisp, about 3 minutes. Remove and place on paper towels to absorb excess oil. Sprinkle with salt while still warm.

Spicy Scallops:

In a stainless steel bowl mix all ingredients together until well incorporated and season with salt and pepper. Cover and place in refrigerator for 2 hours to marinate.

To serve, lay plantain chips individually on a platter and top with 1 scallop. Garnish each 1 with a cilantro leaf.
