Ingredients

8 ounces shrimp, cooked

4 ounces onions, chopped

4 ounces tomatoes, chopped

2 ounces chopped fresh cilantro

2 ounces chopped fresh parsley

4 ounces lemon juice

Hot sauce

Vegetable oil, for frying

1 green plantain, cut into 1/2-inch slices

Directions

  1. Combine the shrimp, onions, tomatoes, cilantro and parsley  in a mixing bowl. Add the lemon juice and hot sauce to taste. Refrigerate overnight to cure the shrimp.
  2. Heat about an inch of oil in a large skillet. Fry the plantains. Remove the plantains from the oil and press down with a wooden block or spoon to hollow them out so it looks like a small cup. Fry the cups again to firm them up.
  3. Scoop the tomato mixture into the plantain cups.
